3 bays, the front half of left bay demolished. Main front (Ball Green Cottage):
truncated left bay has rebuilt gable wall set back. Central and right bays: gabled.
Chamfered plinth, quoins on right. Chamfered quoined doorway on left of central
bay with C20 door and pent porch. Board door in plain stone surround to left of
right bay. Double-chamfered mullion windows, of 5-lights to central bay with above,
a 2-light and a 5-light window both with round-headed lights and sunk spandrels
and a "W" in head of central light of the latter. Right bay has a 4-light window
with 3-light window above. Gables are coped and have shaped kneelers. 2 stacks
with tabling to left pitch of central bay. 2 external stacks to right end, front
one truncated. Rear: 3 gabled bays, outer bays projecting. Left bay has chamfered
plinth, 5-light window with hoodmould and 4-light window above, kneelers and coping.
Central bay has C19 openings with raised plain stone surrounds. Doorway on right
with overlight and tall keystone incised with 'H' and crosses. Above keystone
are remains of earlier datestone, the cornice of which has dated boss. 2 windows
to left of door and 3 above. Right bay has quoins, tie-stone surround doorway
on left, and small rectangular opening with ledge in gable. In left return of
this bay are traces of a C17 1st-floor window. Right return: right-hand stack
has 2 gutter spouts at offset. To right is a blocked, lst-floor, chamfered light.
Interior: left (east) bay, now outbuilding, has flat-arched fireplace with moulded
surround and deep lintel. Heavy-scantling beams. Cyma-moulded spine-beams; stop-
chamfered joists. One king-post truss with cusped brace to ridge-plate and struts,
wattle and daub in gable, indicating division wall in this bay. Wall plates,
purlins, rafters. Kendall suggests that the 'W' on the front window refers to
a member of the Wilde family which occupied the building 1703-63, and that the
symbols over the rear door are possibly a merchant's mark (Kendall pp 202, 230-38).
