Farmhouse, subsequently 2 cottages, now one dwelling. Probably C17; altered.
Handmade brick (painted white) with exposed timber-framing at 1st floor and in
part of rear wall, red tiled roof, brick chimney stack. Three-unit plan (probably
formerly with lobby-entry at junction), with large lean-to addition to rear of
right-hand half. Two storeys with three 1st floor windows; exposed timber-
framing at 1st floor includes a continuous rail at 1st floor (perhaps formerly a
jetty bressummer), a wallplate, several irregularly spaced studs between these,
and intermediate rails; the brick ground floor has a vertical joint in line with
the chimney between the 1st and 2nd units suggesting the position of a former
doorway, but the present doorway is in the 1st bay, with a 2-light window beside
it; casement windows of 3 and 2 lights in the 2nd bay, and a smaller 2-light
casement in the 3rd bay. Wide stepped chimney-stack on the ridge. Rear: full-
height timber framing including one wall-post, part of a rail, and some studs and
intermediate rails. Interior: back-to-back inglenook fireplaces with stop-
chamfered bressummers, that in the 1st bay with a bread-oven in its left side,
and the other partly blocked; dog-legged stairs to the rear of the chimney stack;
at 1st floor, 3 cross-frames, exposed timber-framing in the rear wall including a
tension brace, and windbraces at both ends; a C17 chamber fireplace in the
middle bay.
