EARL STONHAM BLACKSMITH'S LANE TM 06 SE 1/87 Cherry Tree Farmhouse - - II

Former farmhouse. Early or mid C16 with late C16 extension. 2 storeys and attics. 3-cell cross-passage entrance plan. Timber framed and plastered. Plaintiled roof with axial chimney of red brick. C20 casements with some boarded shutters of possibly C19 origin. Panelled C20 entrance door. Massive and complete timber framing fully exposed. Several diamond-mullioned windows, now blocked. Close-studwork, and crownpost roof, with 2-way plank bracing to the square post at the open truss. The house was probably "reversed" in late C16: the former parlour to right was subdivided and given a pair of 4-centred arched service doorways, and a ladder stair with triangular block treads. The former service cell to left was demolished, and a parlour cell built upon its site. A new cross passage was formed at what was originally the "upper" end of the hall. An open fireplace with a wide lintel in the hall may possibly be a part of the earlier phase.
