House, once 2 cottages, originally a farmhouse. Mid/late Cl7, 2 cottages in
the C19, reunited and refurbished circa 1960. Ground floor of Flemish bond
brick with decorative use of burnt headers; timber-framing above clad with
peg-tile; brick stacks and chimneyshafts; peg-tile roof.

Plan and Development: L-plan house. The main block faces south. It has a 3-
room plan. The centre and right (east) end rooms have been knocked together
and there is a projecting gable-end stack. The left room (now the entrance
hall) has an axial stack. Both these stacks are C19. It seems there was
formerly an axial stack between the centre and right rooms; it still survives
at first floor level. 2-room plan block projecting to the rear of the left
end rebuilt and enlarged in c20. It contains the present kitchen. 2 storeys
with attics in roofspace.

Exterior: Regular, not quite symmetrical 3-window front of C19 casements with
lattice-pattern glazing bars. Both former front doorways (to cottages)
blocked and entry now through C20 door in left (west) end behind gabled porch.
The main roof is half-hipped both ends. A dormer in the centre to rear lights
the attic stair. Rear block has C20 casements with diamond leaded pane

Interior: The ground floor shows mostly C19 and C20 features. The headbeam
of the C17 partition between the centre and right rooms remains and shows
evidence of doorways each end. The chamfered and scroll-stopped axial beam to
right also shows evidence that it took a partition below. The C17 structure
survives nearly complete on the first floor and much is exposed. The outer
walls have straight braces and the rear wall has evidence in the centre of
small, diamond-mullion windows. The right end room fireplace has a plain oak
lintel and the original attic stair rises against the chimneyshaft; its steps
made of quarter-log baulks (a rare survival). The attics are plastered and
therefore the roof structure is hidden; it is some kind of side purlin
