3/58 Dassia Cottage

-- II

House, built in two stages: c.1530-1550 and late C16. 2 storeys. 4 windows.
Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roof, once thatched. An axial chimney
of C16 red brick, the shaft rebuilt in C20. Mid C20 casements. Late C20
gabled entrance porch with panelled door. The hall and service cell of a high
quality mid C16 house. Close-studding. Interior: The hall has a double-ogee
moulded binding beam and roll-moulded joists. A pair of 4-centred arched
service doorways, one with original plank door. A complete C17 wainscotted
cross-passage screen. Good queenpost roof: jowled posts and 3-way bracing to
square-set purlins. Lintel led open back-to-back fireplaces. In late C16 the
parlour cell was replaced by a second 2-bay hall with cross-entry (entrance
doorway with 4-centred head) and service cell beyond. Wind-braced clasped-
purlin roof. At this point the earlier hall may have assumed the function of
a parlour: an unusual plan form for a 2-stage C16 house.
