House. Late C15/early C16 and late C18. Timber-framed with red
Flemish-bond brick front and clay pantiled gambrel roof at
right-angles to frontage. 2 storeys with attics.
EXTERIOR: front has plain parapet and rendering over lower
part of ground floor. On second floor one square blind window
opening and one flush square double-hung sash window with
small panes both under rubbed brick arches. First floor has
one flush double-hung sash window and a similar square window,
both with small panes under sharply raking rubbed brick
arches. Ground floor has a large flush double-hung sash window
with small panes and raking arch head and simple architraved
doorcase with flat hood and C20 six-panel door. Part of old
gabled steep pitched roof remains behind gambrel.
INTERIOR: a cross-wing-like structure, with former partition
between front and rear rooms. Timber is wavy with wide stud
spacing and jowlless posts. Side walls were open-framed, with
straight braces to posts, on both flanks of ground-floor front
room. Underside of jetty bressumer has mortices for former,
off-centre moulded mullioned window, suggesting former
intruded cross-passage under SW part of wing.
Room at rear has, on ground floor, large 5-light diamond
mullioned window in NE flank. Floor joists have centre tenons
with soffit shoulders. Remnants of halved and bridled scarf
with vertical peg and under-squinted abutment on display in
house. First-floor rear room has evidence for rear door
(garderobe). Heavy steep raking arch brace to tie beam.
Gambrel roof is later extension to form attic. Reused sail
stock from Ramsey Windmill reused as wall plate and ship's
mast reused in rear wall. Corner cupboard with serpentine
shelves from elsewhere. Probably former 'service' cross-wing
of hall house to SW.
