BURY ST EDMUNDS

TL8564NW ST JOHN'S STREET
639-1/3/603 (West side)
12/07/72 No.33

II

House, now divided into 3 flats. C17 core with C18 and early
C20 extensions. Part timber-framed, part brick; pebbledash
exterior with mock timbering; plaintiled roof with 2 gables
facing the street, that on the right a mansard.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics. One projecting cross window in
the mansard gable supported by 3 ornate brackets; 2 slightly
projecting cross windows to the upper storey; a 3-light window
on left and one cross window on right on the ground storey,
both in heavy flush frames. A small open gabled porch roof
over the central doorway supported on timber columns. Plank
door. Above the ground storey a timber band, elaborately
carved with a vine motif, dated 1630 with a shield bearing a
chevron and 33 woolsacks. This was originally a fascia board
covering a jetty and is not in situ. At tie-beam and collar
level on the gables are bands of Jacobean ornament, also not
in situ. The Victorian pierced and fluted bargeboards to the
gables are also re-used.
INTERIOR: the right side of the house has a fragmentary C17
core, with the line of the lower wallplate and tie visible in
the upper room; it was raised and given a mansard roof in the
C18. The left side seems to be an extension of the same date
as the facade, and is quite without decoration or features of
interest inside.
