9/114 No. 38 (Walpole House)


House. C17, altered in C18 and C19. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with
handmade red plain tiles and slate. Main range facing N, with 2 early C19 axial
stacks. C17 rear wing at left end, and early C18 extension beyond, with axial
stack near front. Early C19 wing to rear right, with slate roof (the other
roofs tiled). 2 storeys, unlit attic and cellar. Ground floor, 2 early C19
sashes of 10+10 lights (including glazed margins). First floor, 3 early C19
sashes of 12 lights. Central door with 6 fielded panels, in early C19 plaster
doorcase with plain pilasters and entablature. Moulded eaves cornice. Stacks
of gault brick. The entrance-hall has a pair of fluted pilasters with a semi-
elliptical arch, early C19. Beams on ground floor boxed. In rear right wing,
early C19 quarter-turn stair with turned newels, mahogany handrail and stick
balusters. On the upper storey some of the timber frame is exposed, with
unjowled posts and much re-used medieval timber. A simple splayed scarf with
almost square abutments in each wallplate of the main range is in this case a
late feature. Clasped purlin roof with pegged apices, and re-used rafters from
a crownpost roof. The rear left wing has one joist inscribed 'R.B. 1716', and a
gambrel roof with well-made bolted knees at the angles of the principal rafters.
