4/57 White House Farmhouse -

GV II

Former farmhouse, C16 in 2 stages with a range added at right angles in C18. Originally of 3-cell plan. One storey with attics, the parlour block of 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roofs; an axial chimney with shaft of C19 gault brick. Two gabled casement dormers in the lower range. Mainly early and mid C20 small-pane casements. Framed and boarded C20 entrance door with two glazed panels; open flat-roofed porch. The lower range towards the road is of mid C16; arch-braced studwork, with shutter rebates for mullioned windows, and clasped-purlin roof. 3 bays remain; the western end has an adapted truss in which cruck-formed knees support a collar-beam which is probably the original tie-beam shortened. In c.1560-80, a parlour block was added. This has good close-studding and blocked mullioned windows; the mullion profile is unusually flattened, with rib-and-cavetto mouldings. An open late C16 fireplace with a cambered lintel is in the hall.
