5/210 Henley Manor Farmhouse

4.2.58

II*

Detached farmhouse. Mostly early C17, but possibly with medieval fragments. Mostly Ham stone cut and squared, ashlar dressings; Welsh slate roofs between coped gables, over stone slate base courses to centre block; ashlar and brick chimney stacks. 'U'-plan, the central portion having double-roof plan; 3-storey and 2-storey with attics. East elevation of 2 storeys with attic, 6 bays, of which bay 6 is a gabled projection. Moulded plinth, string courses. 2-light hollow-chamfer mullioned and transomed cruciform windows, in wave-mould recesses, mostly rectangular leaded. To bay 5 an ovolo-mould 4-centre-arched doorway with 2-light window over. In flank of the bay 6 gable a further cruciform window to first floor and signs of a blacked window below. In gable end are reserve-chamfer mullioned windows, each with separate labels, of 4-lights to ground and first floors and 3-light to attic. Windows in south gable of this wing all blocked, with pairs of cruciform windows to attic and first floor, one of the latter now in reuse, a C20 window to ground floor which was apparently blank before. On west return 2 more cruciform windows, a C20 window and a doorway, this last possibly in a former window position. The central range, on an east-west axis, of 3 storeys, 4 bays, irregular fenestration. Straight joint between bays 1 and 2. To bay 1 are 3-light hollow-chamfer mullioned windows in chamfered recesses to first and second floors, the 4-light below now adapted to incorporate a doorway, the top window having unworked top mitres, and hinting at a later Cl7 date for this section. In bay 2 are two mezzanine windows, a 2-light hollow-chamfer and a single-light plain chamfer; to bay 3 a 2-light reserve-chamfer mullioned window to first floor and below a doorways with a C19 open stone porch with flat roof. To bay 4 a tall mezzamine window, probably cruciform originally but the transome apparently removed. The west block virtually detached, having a 2 storeys high link wall and simple doorway between it and the centre block: in part this could be a C19 rebuild. 2 storeys with attics, 3 bays. Plinth, string moulds over both floors. Hollow-chamfer mullioned windows in chamfered recesses, 5-light to ground floor, 4-light to first, and 3-light to attics, set into plain gables under hoodmoulds. Between bays are cambered-arched doorways. At first floor level between bays 1/2 a small trefoil cusped window. South gable plain, as is west flank, except for the string courses on both sides. A C20 door and window inserted at ground floor level and a small lean-to added, and fire escape added to north-west corner. Interior not seen although in one ownership there appear to be several tenants, as well as business and conference use. The courtyard surface of interest: a sunken yard with cobbles and stone paving between steps and doorways, seemingly of early date.
