3/37 The Dower House

House. C17 and early C18. One-and-a-half storeys: 3-cell lobby-entrance
plan. Timber-framed; plastered in panels of simple comb-pargetting; thatched
roof. An internal chimney-stack with a plain red brick shaft, and an end
stack on the south. 3 3-light early C18 mullion-and-transome windows with
square-leaded panes, and 4 gabled dormers with square leaded panes to 2-light
casement windows. 6-panelled door: raised fielded panels; eared architrave,
bolection-moulded frieze, triangular pediment. Little original framing
visible. Early C18 additions include the long single-storey lean-to on the
rear wall, which has reused C17 casement windows with wrought-iron frames and
diamond-leaded panes; the stair beside the chimney-stack, with turned
balusters and plain handrails, and the corner fireplace in the small south
room, with eared architrave and bolection-moulded frieze similar to the outer
doorcase. The roof, which has clasped purlins, no principal rafters and a
ridge-piece, also appears to be an C18 replacement.
