(South east side)
No. 27 (The Old
White House)

House. C18 origin, remodelled and roof raised early C19. Altered and
extended mid-late C20. Timber framed, plaster rendered and low pitch slate
roofs, hipped, with early C18 red brick stack at right angles to ridge.
T-plan with range projecting to the road and parlour wing of three bays
forming a crosswing. At the rear of the parlour wing is a two bay kitchen.
Two storeys. Elevations date from early-mid C19. Garden front original main
facade. Two flush frame hung sashes with margin lights. Similar
fenestration on either side of doorway to lobby entry, now blocked.
Crosswing now has one window at ground and first floor and glazed door. This
crosswing was extended mid-late C20 with a jetty at the rear. The kitchen at
the rear of the parlour crosswing is also framed, of two bays and one
storey. It has a large stack of red brick. Inside:- Framing exposed, and the
reuse of old material is suggested by one jowled post and others which are
plain. The main beams and lintel over the inglenook are unmoulded. There is
a smaller abutting hearth to the room to the road. The kitchen at the rear
of the parlour may indicate that the house was subdivided and a kitchen
added, or alternatively, that the household expanded and the former kitchen
became a parlour. The development probably took place over a short time.
Brickwork and framing is similar throughout the house. The rear kitchen has
original bread oven adjoining the inglenook.
