House mainly c.1700 but incorporating part of C15 house in rear
wing. C19 and C20 minor alterations and additions. Timber
framed, plaster rendered and pargetted panels. Steeply pitched,
plain tiled roof with original moulded wood eaves. Cornice and
red brick ridge stack at junction of front and rear ranges. Two
ranges forming an L-plan. Two storeys. Fenestration of three
flush frame hung sashes with vertical glazing bars, mid-C19. At
ground floor three hung sashes, including two with sixteen
panes. Off-centre doorway. Early C19 doorcase with moulded
architrave, flat hood and panelled door. Interior: The rear
range contains part of a C15 open-hall which has been remodelled
in C17. Most of a tie beam with substantial arch bracing
survives and, in the roof above the sooted rafters on one side,
are now incorporated in typical C17 staggered butt purl in roof.
The front range is in three bays with a narrower stair and entry
bay. The internal details, e.g. the staircase with toads-back
mahogany rail and square section balusters to the open-string,
are of the early C19. The roof over this front part of the
house is also of a similar butt-purlin type. The house was the
home of G.G. Coulton, the medieval historian.
