(North Side)

4/1 Bottisham Place


Farmhouse of several building periods, including at the South
end a range probably of C15 origins and originally open to the
roof, a C16 extension to the North, enlarged in C17 by a
parallel passage range, and by a two bay service wing to North.
The principal front to the South elevation was remodelled in
early C19. Open hall timber framed cased in gault brick, with
hipped tiled roof. The original three bay plan with a
cross-passage at the low end of the hall is almost intact. The
bay to the left hand has partly been removed. Two storeys. Two
clasping pilaster buttresses frame a range of three recessed
hung sashes with glazing bars. The doorway has a contemporary
flat roof portico with slender fluted columns with entablature.
The door is panelled. The C16 extension is also timber-framed
and plaster rendered and was originally jettied on the side
facing the High Street. The jetty has been underbuilt. the
opposing wall has also been cased in brick. Gabled roof
incorporating the C17 passageway. The ridge stack has been
rebuilt and the gable end stack at the North end is C17. Two
storeys. The fenestration is later and includes hung sashes of
twelve panes each, on the East side. In the rear wall there is
a C16 window probably reset with hollow and roll moulded
mullion. The C17 two bay service wing addition is timber
framed, cased in brick with gabled, tiled roof with a lower
ridge than that of the C16 range. One louvered window at the
gable end is original. The portable window with two fixed
leaded lights is still used in this opening in the winter
months. Interior: the original hall has no features or timber
framing exposed, but the C16 addition has evidence of the
jettied wall to the High Street. This wing has one ground floor
room lined with early C18 panelling, a bolection moulded
fireplace surround, and a first floor room has mid C16
panelling, probably reset. The overmantel has five small
linenfold panels and three panels carved with the head of a man
and a woman in roundels, one with the date 1654. Another panel
has a shield carried by winged putti in a surround of floral
ornament. The initials I.H. probably refer to John Hasell
(d.1572) whose family probably owned the house at that time.
Inside the C17 wing to the North, the roof trusses are of raised
tie-beam construction.
