9-12-55 as The Lilacs and Rose Cottage
- II

House, C15 and mid C16 with major late C17 alterations. 2 storeys. 3-cell
lobby-entrance plan. Timber-framed and plastered with late C20 false half-
timbering. Thatched roof, hipped at right hand end, with axial C17 chimney of
red brick, and one C19 gabled casement dormer. C18 casements, one at ground
storey having transomes; other C19 small-pane casements. C17 oak plank
entrance door with an oblong fanlight reconstructed from C17 ovolo mullions; a
small C20 plaintiled canopy. The 3 cells are of different dates: the parlour
block to left is of mid C16 with heavy studwork with arch wind-bracing; the
gable (formerly half-hipped) has a pair of base-crucks with tension-bracing.
Altered coupled-rafter roof. The upper floor was renewed in late C17. The
service cell to right is of early C16 or possibly C15: a binding joist retains
a heavy knee of mediaeval form. A diamond mullioned window, and clasped-
purlin roof in this cell probably of late C16 or early C17. The central hall
was totally rebuilt in late C17: small-section floor-joists, butt purlin roof
and wide lintelled open fireplace. A number of moulded C16/C17 plank doors.
