6/60 Rundle House

House. Late C14, c.1400 and 015. Timber framed and plastered with red brick
front, but part exposed timber framing. Of 2 storeys and of complex plan form
with pegtile roof. The frontage is composed of 3 units. To the west is a
jettied carriage arch structure with exposed framing, jettied gable, original
cusped bargeboards, blocked first floor window and attached timber shafts with
moulded capitals and bases. The centre part has a parapetted Flemish bond front
of early C19 which is continued in a projecting block part of which is a C20
extension. This unit has a roof gabled to the east and hipped to the west.
Centre block has moulded brick cornice, one double hung sash with small panes
and one casement with small panes under brick arches, over a projecting flat
topped porch with pair of doors and pair of similar but deeper double hung sash
windows. The west projecting block has 3 casement windows with small panes over
2 similar windows without glazing bars and a canted bay window with hipped peg
tile roof. Internally there is much exposed timber framing. The carriage arch
is one bay of a former 2 bay c.1400 structure with cross-quadrant crown posts,
halved and bridled scarf joists, centre tenoned floor joists and former window
in front corner of flank before front face of 'hall'. The hall is a 2 bay
structure with off-centre cross-quadrant crown post and only the wider bay, soot
blackened. Both this truss and that to west adjoining carriage arch were
originally open trusses. On the ground floor, a central horizontal timber is
moulded to the wide bay with a crenellated head. A similar but simpler moulded
timber crosses the western truss. The narrow bay has clamp timbers with hollow
mouldings presumably supporting a floor. The eastern unit of the original
structure is a 3 bay crosswing, formerly gabled to front and hipped with a
gable to rear. This was jettied at the front, has a simple crown post roof and
heavy timber framing incorporating a service door head. This is of a probable
C15 date. Behind the 'hall' is a long service wing with jowled posts and a
heavily framed block at the south end, a probable former kitchen. RCHM 22.
