- No 14 (Smilax House)
Pair of terraced houses,originally one. A C15 or early C16 crosswing to left,
with rebuilt late C16 hall range to right; refronted late C19. 2 storeys.
Timber-framed, encased late C19 in red brick, with moulded band at 1st floor
and dentil course at eaves. Plaintiled roof (No.14 has pierced ridge tiles).
Chimneys of red brick at either end. C19 sash windows; those at ground floor
have segmental heads (No.12 has C20 casements in original openings). C19
doorways; above each is a moulded brick pediment and a festoon in terracotta.
No.14 has a C19 6-panelled door, No.12 has a C20 4-panelled door. The cross-
wing is of 2 bays, probably projecting further rearwards until C19, and
originally comprised twin service rooms with a chamber above; the original
coupled rafter roof is encapsulated within the C19 roof. In early C17 the
service rooms were amalgamated and became a parlour, with a fine plaster
ceiling of moulded panels containing motifs of roses, acorns and fleurs-de-
lys. Both houses have exposed unmoulded late C16 1st floor structures in the
hall range, which was extended to rear and given a 2-span roof in late C19.
