Listing Text




House. Late C16, with C20 extensions. Timber-framed and rendered with incised
panels; thatched roof. 1½ storeys. An internal chimney-stack with a plain red
brick shaft; 2-cell plan. 2-light C20 plain casement windows; original lobby
entry blocked; the present entrance into a small enclosed porch added at the left
end. A single-storey C20 lean-to along the whole rear wall. The whole frame is
exposed internally: all sills have been raised; substantial, widely-spaced, full
height studding; main beams with a wide chamfer and curved stops unusually incised
with a cross saltire, joists chamfered with stepped stops; plain timber lintels to
2 ground floor fireplaces. 4 bays, including a chimney-bay: good Tudor brickwork
to stack with associated newel stair. The tie-beams to each side of the stack
were low, and one has been removed; in the 2-bay room to the right of the stack
the open truss has a low collar of deep section instead of a tie-beam. Remains of
several original windows: on the rear wall of the upper room to left of the stack
of 5-lights, with hollow-chamfer mullions in situ. Roof with clasped purlins,
ceiled off at collar level.
