II*

Former farmhouse. Mid to late C16. 2 storeys and attics; 3-cell plan, with internal chimney-stack and cross-entry. Timber-framed and rendered, with thatched roof. The internal stack has a plain red brick shaft. Plain 2-light C20 casement windows to upper floor; one old 3-light casement window with transome, and one replacement C20 window, to ground floor. Plank door beneath a plain Doric portico. In the south gable wall, a 4-light casement window to each floor. Good timbering exposed inside: 5 bays. Full height studs in the long walls; entrance door still in the cross-entry position with a later partition forming a corridor. Formerly 2 service rooms, now made into one; 2 original doorways, chamfered and square-headed, one blocked. The 2-bay hall has a chamfered main beam with curved step stops and jewel and similar joists without the jewel. The open fireplace has a timber lintel and a damaged band of ornate pargetting across the whole wall above the fireplace. The parlour has a similar, but not identical, treatment of the ceiling, which is not plastered between the joists; plain timber lintel, and a large blocked original window on the front wall. The main beams in both rooms have sunk noticeably, and both halves of the ceiling slope towards the centre. In the room above the parlour, both the ceiling and fireplace have ornate plasterwork of c.1600, similar, but more lavish, than that in the hall: the main cross- beams have bands of flowing decoration with bunches of grapes and foliage, the 4 quarters of the ceiling are liberally ornamented with Tudor roses, fleur-de-lys and other motifs; bands of decoration above the fireplace include dragon motifs. The designs are blurred by repeated coats of limewash. In the service end of the house, there are 5-light diamond-mullioned windows, blocked, but with mullions in situ, on each of the side walls, and evidence for another in the gable end. The tie-beams have long arched braces, and the upper ceilings are original. Clasped purlin roof in 7 bays: full principals,
cut away for the insertion of the purlins; windbraces curving one way only in each bay, so that 2 bays complete an arch; no windbraces to the chimney-bay. The house stands sideways-on to the road.
