Hook Cottage

House, with an elegant Regency facade. 1720, altered and refronted in Gothick
style in the early C19, with vernacular extensions of 1934, in matching materials.
Flint walls with galletting and red brick dressings, the Gothick features of
yellow brickwork, later walls of flint with brick plinth, quoins, 1st floor flush
bands. Hipped slate roof. Symmetrical south front of two storeys (altered walling
indicates an original five windows), 1.1.1 windows, with slight set back at west
side (1934) of one window. Gothic casements, coupled to the ground-floor and to
a low cill level. Arched half-glazed door. The feature of the building, expressed
in yellow (white) brickwork, is the Eothic 'improvement', comprising projections
at each side with Tudor-arched openings, linked by a splayed open porch of two
narrow arched openings (with short splays) and two wide (middle) arched openings,
separated by narrow corner buttresses. Above, is a narrower central section, with
a gable above a hoodmould. The brickwork has a plinth, chamfered quoins, angular
band and coping to the 1st floor parapet (with dipped centre at each side and
raised centre in the middle), the buttresses rising above parapet level. The gable
has flanking pilasters on tapered stepped bases, and ends in a tall octagonal
finial (erected as a chimney flue but sealed and with a fox weather vane). Other
elevations of vernacular form, with sashes and casements. The interior has a
plain Regency staircase.
