Summary[edit]

Description
English: Stoneacre. a charming, half-timbered gentleman's house dating from about 1480. Yeoman farmers of this time built to a standard pattern that had remained unchanged for generations. The core of the house was a central hall open to the rafters. Screened from the hall on either side were two floors of smaller chambers. These rooms provided the privacy that was increasingly demanded in an age of communal living. By the end of the First World War Stoneacre had become derelict. However, in the 1920s the building was extensively and painstakingly restored by Aymer Valance. The house seen today is thus a scholarly recreation of a Tudor timber-framed house rather than an unaltered original building. It is now in the care of the National Trust and lived in as a private residence. Open to the public on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, mid-March to mid-October.
