3/81 Hop Green Farmhouse

- II

House. Early C17, altered in late C18 and early C19, renovated c.1975. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays facing SW with axial stack in second bay from left end, forming a lobby-entrance. 2 storeys. Service wing of one storey and attics to rear of right end, with internal stack at end (stack rebuilt in C20). Single-storey lean-to extension in rear left angle. Early C19 ancillary range of flint and brick rubble extending to right of main range, one storey, with hipped roof. At each storey, 2 early C19 sash windows of 10+10 lights and one of 8+8 lights (frames renewed c.1975). 6-panel door, top 2 panels glazed, in moulded doorcase. Roof half-hipped at both ends. The parlour (at the left end) has a chamfered binding beam with lamb's tongue stops, a chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue and roll stops, and a wide wood-burning hearth with cranked mantel beam with plain stops, and jambs of 0.33 brickwork. The room to right of the stack has a chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops, and an C18/early C19 pine fire surround (moved from the parlour c.1975). The right end roof is wholly plastered. Early C19 straight stair to rear of middle room, with at the top a turned newel, oval-section hardwood handrail and stick balusters. One jowled post is exposed. Early floorboards on first floor. In upper rooms, 2 early C19 cast iron ducknest grates. The roof has been raised approx. 0.40 metre and the roof rebuilt in the early C19, re-using some smoke-blackened medieval rafters. The rear wing has exposed plain joists of square section jointed to the axial beam with soffit tenons with diminished haunches, and a butt-purlin roof. The Feering tithe award of 1841 shows that this house was then associated with a farm of 87 acres (Essex Record Office D/CT 137). RCHM (Feering) 10 reported that various repairs were dated 1788 and 1807; the dates are not now visible. The owner reports that all groundsills and footings and some parts of the timber frame were renewed c.1975.
