ASHBOCKING THE STREET TM 15 SE 7/4 Manor Farmhouse GV II Farmhouse, formerly manor house. The front range was added c.1810 to the rear range of early C17. Front range: gault brick (now painted). Low-pitched slated hipped roof with deep shallow eaves. 3 windows, 2 storeys. Small-pane sashes with flat arches of gault brick; ground storey windows are set within shallow blind arches, and the detail repeats at the end elevations. Tuscan portico porch, and a pair of glazed panelled entrance doors. T-shaped C17 rear range: timber-framed and plastered, plaintiled roofs. A large external C17 chimney of red brick on north side, recapped in gault brick c.1810. Various early C19 casements. C17 close studding with arch stud-bracing exposed internally, with much oak wainscotting at 1st storey. Ovolo-moulded 1st floor members. In the Proc. Suffolk Inst. Arch. for 1902, a print copied by J.S. Corder shows the east elevation before C19 alterations. A brick parapet-gable with crowstepping shown on the print remains, truncated and remodelled, with a plastered ovolo-moulded window of c.1600; all now within the roof space. In a C19 granary 40m to the north is a reused section of a tie-beam, enriched and carved with "E 1674 M". In 1674 Edward Mann, Recorder of Ipswich, lived here; a demolished wing on the north side is possibly the source of this, and other materials in the farm buildings.
