28.11.50 House, Gwynne
Cottage & No.4


Row of 3 houses. Late C17 or early C18, altered mid C19. 2
storeys and attics, 5 windows. Timber-framed and rendered;
moulded wooden band at 1st floor. Pantiled roof with eaves
soffit having fretted pendant frieze; axial chimneys of red
brick. Mid C19 sash windows with architraves and wooden hood-
moulds; some retaining their hinged louvred shutters. An early
C18 sash window at the south-west gable has thick glazing bars
and unusually small panes. Entrance doors with 6 panels, the
upper pair glazed; architraves and hood-moulds. A mid-C19
extension to the left of Nell 1 Gwynne's house has a 3-light
segmental bay window at 1st floor with small-pane sashes. A fine
late C17 or early C18 staircase in Gwynne Cottage with heavy
framing, moulded handrails and turned balusters of urn form. The
building was one house until division and extension took place in
C19, and is believed to have been built adjacent to the Palace of
King Charles II, for the use of Nell Gwynne when she accompanied
the King to the Newmarket Races in the late C17.
