639-1/14/732 (West side)
12/07/72 No.87


House, now offices. C17 core; early C19 front; C20 extensions
at rear. Timber-framed, encased in later brick, now painted.
Tiled roof with a plain eaves soffit. Basic plan of main range
and cross-wing.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, attics to part and cellars; 3 window
range: sashes with vertical glazing bars in plain reveals. On
the ground storey, a small-paned C20 bowed shop window on the
right is set in an early C19 surround with reeded pilasters. 4
flat-headed dormers have sash windows with vertical
glazing-bars. A recessed entrance doorway with a segmental
fanlight and radial glazing-bars has columns in antis. At the
rear, the cross-wing has a canted bay rising 2 storeys with 3
small-paned sash windows to each storey.
INTERIOR: extensive cellars, below both front and rear ranges,
with great variation in walling: rubble flint, old brick and
render with stretches of re-used stone. Along the front wall a
section of stone appears to contain a doorway which gave
access to the street; an adjacent part is brick-vaulted and
the walls have alternate courses of knapped flint and
tile-like bricks.
No features of interest are exposed on the ground storey, but
on the upper storey there are dadoes of re-used Jacobean
panelling, and some main components of the cross-wing frame
are visible. The rear upper room of the wing has the ceiling
raised and coved. Rafters renewed along the front of the roof.
A fine stair with turned balusters, panelled dadoes and square
headed column newels, and moulded handrail.
