2/12 Street Farmhouse -

GV II

Former farmhouse. Mid C16 and early C17. Part 2 storeys, part 2 storeys and attics: a main range and later cross-wing. Timber-framed and rendered, with pantiles on the southern slope of the cross-wing and the remainder of the roof thatched. 3-light and 2-light windows, mainly C20, in mullioned style. C20 entrance door. The main range, set sideways-on to the Street, in 5 bays, has a 3-cell plan with internal chimney and cross passage, divided from the hall by an original plank screen. The rooms to each side of the stack have exposed timber ceilings; main beams with wide chamfer and scroll-stops with bar, joists set flat and chamfered, with similar stops. Each room has a large open fireplace with plain timber lintel and traces of tuck-pointing on the brickwork. A newel stair beside the stack, and another stair in the service area, which is divided into 2. The room above the service rooms is not accessible from the rest of the upper floor, and was probably used as a cheese room initially. Main posts with long arched braces removed; cambered tie- beams; arched braces to side and end walls at the corners; remains of diamond mullioned windows. On the rear wall, one 3-light C18 casement window with square leaded panes. The roof has clasped purlins, diminished principals and windbraces; assembly marks to the trusses. C17 cross wing in 5 bays with an end chimney-stack. Plain framing exposed: one upper room has a window with ovolo-moulded mullions. Roof in 4 bays with clasped side purlins, numbered principals, altered.
