7/238 No. 27
Large house. C18 or early C19 with some C17 work visible in rear wing. Probably
plastered cob with stone footings. Hipped thatched roof. The house appears to
conform to a 3-room through-passage plan and might be an C18 remodelling of an older
building. 2-storeys with attic dormers. Right hand end stack, and internal rear
lateral stack; brick shaft.
Front: 8-window range. First floor windows, all the same, C 19 2-light, 10 leaded
panes per light; ground floor with main porch, to the right of centre reeded
pilasters and moulded cornice; a late C19 entrance to the left, moulded canopy (on
shaped brackets) continued to form lintel of adjacent windows; 5 other windows (early
C19), 2-lights with margin panes. Left hand end with one 2-light window to each
floor. Rear wing with 3-light ovolo-moulded window.
Interior: mainly C19, including well stair and some other joinery; the roof trusses
sit well down in wall; apex carpentry not visible. It is possible that the roof is
as early as the late C17.
