The following shall be added:


2. House. Circa early C17 or possibly earlier with circa C18 and C19 extensions.Large weatherboarded C20/C21 two storey extension to the south.

MATERIAL: Timber framed, plastered incised lines replicating ashlar masonry. Painted brick outshut and small UPVC conservatory at rear. Thatched roof, gabled at left end and hipped at right end where it is carried down over outshut. Brick axial stack to left of centre.

The original house had a 3-room plan, possibly with the hall at the centre and parlour on left, both heated from back-to-back fireplaces in the axial stacks in front of which is an entrance lobby. The single storey outshut on the right hand end is probably C18 and the outshut behind the hall and parlour is C19 or C20.

2 storey. Facade has C20 door to left of centre,with flanking C20 3 and 4-light metalcasements with glazing bars on the ground floor and 3 small late C19 or C20 casements under the eaves on the first floor.

At the rear 4 C20 metal frame casements under the eaves and a single storey outshut with a slate lean-to roof with C20 UPVC conservatory to the left.

The left hand room has a chamfered cross beam, rough exposed joists and a large brick C17/C18 fireplace with a chamfered timber lintel, partially rebuilt. The centre room has a chamfered axial beam, large unchamfered joists and a large rebuilt brick fireplace, its lintel replaced. Partition between hall and unheated right hand room removed. The partition (original end wall) between former unheated room and outshut has exposed studding without infill. The first floor has surviving tie beams, wall plate, midrails, stud partitions and wall frames and there are some exposed principal and common rafters, suggesting that the roof structure may survive substantially unaltered. The first floor front wall frame remains largely intact and includes a jowled storey post and close-studding.


* Stonicott is a good example of a timber framed building, which although extended in the C20/C21, retains a significant proportion of its original fabric.

* Changes of the C17/C18 add to the special interest of the building
