4/5 Hambleden
- II

House, formerly a pair of cottages. Late C16 and mid C17, with
mid C20 extensions. Timber-framed and rendered: half hipped
thatched roof with decorated ridge. Internal chimney-stack with
rebuilt shaft. Mid C20 casement windows throughout: 4 eyebrow
dormers. To the south of the chimney-stack is the oldest part of
the house: 3 bays of plain C16 framing, including the original
roof-timbers: clasped purlins, principal rafters and curved
windbraces from principals to purlins. In the upper part of the
south gable are 2 complete 5-light mullioned windows, the
mullions probably originally of diamond form, but modified for
later glazing. In the spaces betweeen these 2 windows is a C20
casement window. To the north of the chimney-stack, the ground
storey room has a main beam with scroll-stops. The basic house
was probably a 2-cell end-chimney type, extended into a 3-cell
building in the C17: by the C19 it had become 2 cottages, divided
by the chimney-stack, and was restored back to one house from a
semi-ruinous condition.
