7/52 Rivermead
(formerly listed as

House. Early C17, with later alterations. Rubble, stone slate roof. 2
storeys with rear outshut of various builds, 2 bays. South side: to right,
part-glazed door in chamfered quoined surround. 3-light double-chamfered
mullion windows, 2 on each floor. Ashlar coping. Stacks at ends and in
centre. Rear outshut, oldest section to right, formerly forming porch:
quoins. Door of 6 carved panels in quoined ashlar Tudor-arched surround
with moulded arris, and the letter 'W' in left spandrel, and inscription on
the lintel being no longer legible. To left, ground-floor side-sliding sash
window with deep lintel and first-floor 9-pane unequally-hung sash window.
To left again, early C18 stair turret with flat-faced 2-light landing window
in ashlar architrave, with blocked 2-light window below. To left again, 2-
light flat-faced mullion window and C20 casement window with deep lintel.
Interior: in rear porch, to left, chamfered single-light window with
stanchion; bench table to right; stop-chamfered Tudor-arched ashlar inner
doorway, chamfered beam with moulded joists. In main room to front right,
chamfered ashlar fireplace with segmental arch with joggled keystone and
cantilevered side beams incised to look like joggled voussoirs, brick bread
oven to left. In front left room a cupboard with bow-shaped door of fielded
panels. Internal board doors. Stone dogleg staircase with column-on-vase
balusters. To the rear of the house to the right is the wall of a ruined
outbuilding, containing 2 blocked 3-light double-chamfered mullion windows.
It would therefore seem that the early C17 house originally extended further
west, this part probably becoming a barn when the house was altered as a
farmhouse in the early C18.
