5/52 High House ( formerly
listed as Weston Cottage)
House, perhaps originally a summer-house. Mid C17, for Thomas Rede (1613-81)
of Weston Hall, whose initials are in wrought iron on one gable end. Mid C20
single-storey additions. Red brick, with rusticated quoins. Pantiled roof.
2 storeys and attic. 2 bays x 1 bay. The window openings have semi-circular
drip moulds in brick and tile, with small brick dentils below; on the east
gable end the drip moulds are segmental. On the north side is a central
doorway, now bricked up, with rusticated surround and a similar drip mould
enclosing a central feature of raised and moulded brick. Mid C20 windows in
original openings. Against the south wall is a heavy, tapering external
stack, the upper portion rebuilt mid C20. The interior comprises a single
chamber on ground and first floors. The ground floor ceiling is divided into
6 panels, with moulded plaster casing to the beams. The ceiling of the upper
chamber has similarly-moulded panels and some good ornamental plasterwork: on
the underside of the beams is a running design of 4-petalled flowers and
foliage, and around the room is a frieze of small masks, swags and 4-petalled
flowers. At the time of survey (April 1985) both ceilings were damaged and
blackened following a recent fire. According to Suckling's 'The History and
Antiquities of the County of Suffolk'(1846) it was originally much loftier,
but there are no signs of alteration.
