TM 38 SE WISSETT RUMBURGH ROAD

2/74 Rumburgh Place Farmhouse -

- II

Former farmhouse. C16, with mid-c19 front. 2 storeys. Timber-framed, faced in white brick; slate roof. One internal and one end chimney-stack, both with plain white brick shafts. 3 windows to front, 3-light mullion-and-transome type with pintle hinges and segmental arched heads to frames and surrounds. Flat pilasters at the ends, and a slight projection in the centre of the front with a half-glazed entrance door in a segmental arched surround. A 1½ storey lean-to along the rear, not all of one date, is encased in C19 red brick. The interior of the house now has a 2-cell form, with a central entry, and a stair with half-cellar below, but the rear wall of the stair bay contains 2 ovolo- moulded mullioned windows, one above the other, now blocked, and the stair has been at least resited. On each side of the entrance lobby is a very fine square-headed doorway with ogee-moulded architrave and jambs. Another doorway in the same style is blocked in the wall to the right of the stair, and 2 other similar doorways lead off the upper landing, although one of these is resited. Their quality does not accord with the plain timbering of the rest of the house, and it seems likely that it is a fragment of a larger building. Both main rooms have high ceilings with plain exposed beams and joists; the internal chimney-stack is a later insertion. Part of the lean-to at the rear, formerly used as a dairy, seems to have been initially a separate building.
