Listing Text

(south side)
4/81 Cherry Orchard
House. 1691 alteration of earlier structure altered mid C20. Timber
framed and part exposed with plaster and painted brick on ragstone
base, and clad to rear with tile hanging. Extended with applied timber
to brick. Plain tiled roofs. One storey and attic with hipped roof
and gablets and stacks to centre left, end right and projecting forward
at end left. Hipped extension to left. Two jettied gables, that to
right mid C20. Further extension (C20) to right. Leaded wooden casements
on each floor of gables, and 3 more to ground floor. Boarded door to
centre left in gabled half-timbered porch. Rear elevation (some time
entrance front) with datestone on stack: S
Interior: the pyramidal stepped stack with inglenook fireplace interrupts
earlier framing, the floors braced and resting on the stack with re-used
chamfered timbers. Full frame visible, renewed roof. The quality of
additions and restoration in 1691 and 1930's makes it difficult to assess
how much timber (especially on entrance front) is original, or whether
this is a C17 building or earlier structure altered 1691.
