- II*

House, c.1520 with mid c19 alterations. 2 storeys. 2-cell plan. Timber-
framed and plastered; the first floor is long-wall jettied on the east side
with exposed joist-ends. The gables are encased in gault brick, and the
ground storey walling beneath the jetty is encased in red and gault brick in a
chequerboard pattern. Plaintiled roof, hipped and gabletted at both ends. An
axial C16 chimney of red brick. Various mid C19 casements. In the south
gable are late C20 mullioned windows. An original 5-light chamber window with
hollow-chamfered mullions is exposed and glazed. C19 entrance doorway; late
C20 framed and boarded door. High-quality timber framing exposed throughout.
An unusual plan-form: at the south gable is evidence for a cross-entry. An
altered entrance doorway has a 4-centred arched head with vinescroll-enriched
spandrels. Part of the wainscotted cross-entry screen repositioned, with rare
linenfold carving on both faces. All beams and joists at ground storey are
double-ogee carved. Back to back fireplaces with cambered lintels roll-
moulded and vinescroll carved. Both rooms have moulded cills from very wide
oriel windows on the east side. Open trusses have shallow 4-centred arched
bracing. Complete coupled-rafter roof. A C19 pantiled lean-to outshut on the
west side. Graded II* as a rare example of a small house of this plan form,
and of unusually high quality.
