Chantry House
House. C16 and early C18 with major alterations in mid C19 in
Tudor style. Ashlar with plain low C18 plain first floor band
to main front, with red brick and stone rubble to other
elevations plus vestiges of square panel timber framing to
interior. Steeply pitched plain tile roof with stone coped
gables on moulded kneelers and C19 ashlar ridge, gable and side
wall stacks, plus short pieces of moulded C18 stone cornice
between the gables. Two storeys plus attics and four bays.
Ground floor has a gabled porch with four-centred arched
doorcase, plus dripmould, covering an early C18 moulded doorcase
with moulded keystone and panelled door. To east there is a C19
2-light recessed and chamfered mullion window breaking into a
blocked early C18 window with moulded surround and keystone, and
beyond there is a similar 3-light window. To west of the porch
there is a C19 bay window with 3-light recessed and chamfered
cross window to front and moulded cornice with blocking course
over. Beyond to west there is a tall recessed and chamfered C19
cross window set in re-used C18 moulded surround with keystone,
which breaks through the first floor band. Above to east there
are three C19 recessed and chamfered 2-light cross windows with
dripmoulds, that to far east breaking into the first floor band.
To west there is a small 2-light recessed and chamfered mullion
window, set much higher up. To east above the cross windows,
there are three gabled half dormers, the two to east with
similar windows to those below and that to west with larger
gable and a 3-light similar window plus a stone shield over.
Beyond to west there is a smaller gable with a side wall stack
to one side. All windows have single pane casements or fixed
lights. Rear elevation has another early C18 moulded doorcase.
Interior has a tall mid C19 room to west with panelled ceiling
and cornice, plus re-used Elizabethan overmantle to fireplace.
There is an C18 knopped baluster staircase and eastern room has
large oak ceiling beams and a big inglenook fireplace with stone
fireplace within, the lintel of which is inscribed 'AD 1673' and
is probably re-used. Central bedroom and basement both have
areas of exposed square panel timber framing belonging to an
earlier house on the site.
