3/40 Bourne Orchard
24.11.66 (formerly listed as Bourne Orchard
and outbuildings)

House. C16 or early C17, extended and given symmetrical appearance in
C19, SE wing and windows in roof c.1908. Timber frame on red brick sill,
roughcast painted, steep old red tile roofs. A large 2-storeys, jettied,
4 windows long house, along a track from road, facing W with gables at
each end of front, central gabled glazed porch, in line with internal
chimney with diagonal shafts forming cruciform shape above square base.
4 2-storeys canted bay windows with horizontal divided casements and
tiled roofs. Triple sash window in each gable and 2 hipped 2-sashed
dormers at eaves give light to upper parts of 1st floor rooms which rise
into roof. Sidelights to bay window on LH of porch lighting ground floor
room mark the original hall. This formed the middle room of the original
2-storeys, 3-cells, internal-chimney, lobby-entry plan house with
continuous front jetty and probably a gabled N unheated service bay.
This house had 4 structural bays, the widest for the hall, the narrowest
for the chimney and entrance lobby, where the staircase may have been
sited. The floor is carried on axial beams. Differences in construction
and variations in the height of the red brick front sill show where the
later changes involved (1) extending the N bay by about l½M to N and
building tall external side-wall chimneys there with 3 diagonal tall
shafts, (2) adding a matching gabled 2-storeys bay as new parlour at S
end making the front symmetrical. New dining room with higher ground
floor level added to rear of this S wing c.1908 together with other rear
extensions and windows in roof giving more light to 1st floor. (inf the
owner and Mrs. Athene Sanders).
