CROWFIELD STONHAM ROAD TM 15 NW 3/21 Wood Farmhouse GV II Farmhouse, C15 with early C17 remodelling. 1 storey and attics. 3-cell plan, converted to lobby-entrance form in C17. Timber-framed and plastered with some C19 herringbone pargetting in panels. Thatched roof with axial C17 chimney of red brick with sawtooth shaft. A large C19 eyebrow dormer. Early C19 small-pane casements with Gothick hoodmoulds. C19 flat-roofed entrance porch, with 4-panelled door and simple pilasters and cornice. A 2-storey pantiled C18 service wing to rear. A 2-bay open hall of unusually small proportions forms the nucleus of the house; the open truss is almost entirely removed but leaves evidence for long arch braces rising from pilasters. A blocked 2-centred arched cross-entry doorway. Twin service room doorways are chamfered; but are without arches, an exceptional omission for the period which underlines the modesty of the building. Widely-spaced studding with convex arched wind-bracing at corners. Service rooms with heavy rough joists (the partition removed). Said to retain smoke-blackened roof (probably of coupled-rafter form). An original circular open hearth is preserved beneath the present floor, with radially-set bricks on edge. In early C17 the parlour cell was rebuilt larger. A fireplace with cambered lintel in hall, and inserted upper floor, both of late C16 or early C17.
