9/35 Waterloo House
-- II*

House. Early-mid C16. Timber framed and plastered, the ground floor cased or
rebuilt in colourwashed brick. Plaintiled roof. 2 storeys and attic.
Jettied facade, the bressummer carved with running leaf decoration. 2-cell
form. 3 windows, mainly C18 3-light mullion and transom casements with C20
square-leaded panes. 2 C20 windows to ground floor. Boarded entrance door
with moulded fillets; mid C19 reeded architrave with corner roundels. The
doorway is approached by a flight of 3 steps. Internal stack. Both ground
floor rooms have fine ceilings with multiple mouldings to the bridging beams
and moulded joists with scrolled stop-chamfers and soffits with sunk spandrels
terminating in a cross. There are similarly-moulded cornices at the ends of
each room. In the hall there is evidence for a screened cross-passage. Some
good first floor studding with evidence for 2 phases of windows. The original
windows has separate lintols pegged into the frame, a very unusual feature.
Some re-used C16-C17 panelling, one section inscribed 'REPENT LAMENT AN SIN'.
C17 attic floor with joists set on edge. The roof has a single row of clasped
purlins and cranked wind-bracing. The present stack, with back-to-back
fireplaces, is a later insertion; it seems likely there was originally a stack
against the rear wall of the hall.
