House. C17, early C19. Timber-framed and weatherboarded,
hipped peg-tiled roof. Rectangular plan, principal stack set
to rear of roof apex, off centre to W.
EXTERIOR: 2 storey and attic. Front, N elevation, 3 window
range with central front door. Windows all sashes with thin
glazing bars, 4x4 panes, all except one, are essentially early
C19 with bead moulding on frames, one, ground floor, N end
renewed in later C19, of differing proportion, without
moulding and with horned sashes. Central door, C20 renewal,
upper glazing with glazing bars, 3x4 panes and lower boarded
panel. Rear, S elevation, pebble sash rendered, 3 window
range, similar to front. Ground floor, W-E, window, 4x4 panes,
window 5x4 panes, early C19 timber-framed bakehouse addition,
weatherboarded with hipped pantiled roof, having casement
window with glazing bars, 5x2 panes, plain C20 stable type
door with gauze panel. First floor, W-E, 2 sash windows, 4x4
panes, C19 casement window with glazing bars, 2x2 panes.
Principal stack and subsidiary bakehouse stack at E end,
through roof pitch, both C19. Dormer window over central bay
with peg-tiled roof, casement of 4x4 panes. W elevation,
plain, pebble dash rendered. E elevation weatherboarded with
ground floor C20 conservatory porch, pebble dash rendered, 3
pane upper glazing and door with upper glazed panel and lower
boarded panel. Within, C20 house door with upper glazed panel,
lower sunk panel, one 2-light casement window and one single
light casement window. Rear extension has C20 boarded door.
The exterior appearance of the house with 3 bays of uneven
width and asymmetrical stack set to rear suggests an C17
INTERIOR: evidence much reworked in C19 but roof at W end is
oak, of C17 clasped side purlin type. Both W end ground and
first floor rooms have central axial joists with C17 lamb's
tongue chamfered stops. Fireplaces all rebuilt but siting and
anomaly in interior C19 beaded boarding of front wall suggest
front door was originally in line with the stack and the house
was a C17, 3-celled lobby entrance type. C19 refurbishment and
C20 repairs, particularly of the back wall and lowering of the
E end roof pitch after bomb damage have further obscured the
original form.
