House. Circa late C16/early C17, possibly 2 phases of building, part of the roof
raised in the C18. Repairs in progress at time of survey (1987). Whitewashed
rendered cob on stone footings; thatched roof, hipped at right end, gabled at left
end; axial stack with a handmade brick shaft, C18 or C19 stack at the right end.
Plan: Single depth plan, 3 rooms wide, the centre room heated with the stack backing
on to what was a through passage, long unheated inner room to the left, formerly
divided into 2 by a thin crosswall, lower end room to the right probably originally
unheated, rear right outshut with a red tiled roof. The house may originally have
extended further to the left (west) than it does now and a change in the carpentry of
the ceiling beams suggests that the right (east) end could be a rebuilding or an
addition. A late C16/early C17 roof structure survives over the left hand room and
formerly continued further to the right but has been replaced by a roof that is
probably C18 with a higher ridge. A C17 stair rises from the centre room; a second,
lower stair rises against the rear wall of the right hand room with access from the
former passage. The lower end (east) now appears to have been unheated originally,
the stack is C18 or C19.
Exterior: 2 storeys except the left hand (west) end which is single-storey and attic.
Asymmetrical 1 plus 3 window front with a probably C19 plank door to the former
passage to right of centre and a semi-circular bread oven to the left of the door.
2- and 3-light C19 or C20 timber casements with glazing bars. On the rear elevation
a pentice shelters the rear door into the left (west) end.
Interior: The centre room has a good open fireplace with chamfered ashlar masonry
jambs, a chamfered lintel with mason's mitres and a bread oven. There is a chamfered
stopped axial beam and chamfered stopped lintel to the doorway to the stair. The
left hand room also retains a chamfered stopped axial beam. The right hand room has
an C18 or C19 fireplace and a scroll-stopped crossbeam.
Roof: 2 side-pegged jointed cruck roof trusses over the left (west) end, the cruck
feet descending to the ground. The ridge indicates that the roof structure extended
further east formerly but this has been replaced with a 'A' frame roof with a pegged
X apex and nailed collars. The left hand jointed cruck truss is unusually close to
the left end wall which is thin in the gable.
An attractive evolved house, group value with Luton Barton House opposite.
