Pair of houses in row. Left gable bears painted inscription
'DC (Chandler?) 1400', but main fabric mid C16 to early C17;
refenestrated C19.
Panel framing with mid rails, unbraced to street front, tile
roof. Parallel side-entry plan: a jettied construction,
carried over Chandlers Court to right, and with 2 framed
gables flush with front.
2 storeys and attic, 1+1-windowed. 2 and 3-light casements to
gables, above 3-light, these set to corner posts left and
right of property. Framed ground floor set back under jetty
has 2 pairs of 4-pane sashes with leading flanking wide plank
door. To right a further narrow plank door. In return to
Chandlers Court in braced framing a wide plank door to No.58.
Large square brick stack to ridge, off-centre left.
INTERIOR: party walls and central partition in heavy braced
framing. Room to right has 2 chamfered and stopped lateral
beams, and one similar to right; timber winder stair at back,
modified. At first floor some chamfered beams, including heavy
lateral in room to right. In left party wall a small area of
exposed wattle-and-daub panelling; heavy jowelled corner post
at back. To bathroom an early 3-plank door on C18 strap
hinges. In attic a heavy purlin over gables, probably added
later than main fabric; rafters dowelled to purlin. In the
right room at attic level a heavy beam oversails the
staircase. Central stack, replacement fire bressumer,
first-floor right.
Although modified within, the building is in generally good
condition, with more surviving framework than many similar
