South Ash Manor

On the common boundary of the Parishes of Ash-Cum-Ridley (Sevenoaks District)
and Stansted (Tonbridge and Malling District), and previously listed in Stansted
Parish on 1 August 1952.
Tall C16 timber-framed house with vertical half-timbering and plaster infilling,
built on stone foundations of the C12. Hipped tiled roof. Two storeys and
attics. Two gabled dormers. Five windows. Two small casement windows with
small squared leaded panes and 5 large sash windows with glazing bars intact
on each of the ground and first floors. Two-storeyed porch, probably later
than the main building, with its first floor oversailing, ornamental timbering
and a gable over. Flanking the doorway on the ground floor are carved grotesque
wooden figures which are modern insertions but the door is original. Ground
floor addition in red brick at each end. The back is faced with red brick.
The interior has some C16 painted decoration in the dining room and some early
C18 plain panelling.
The house was built by the Hodsoll family, (after whom the hamlet of Hodsoll
Street is named), who retained it until the C19.
