Grundle House
(Formerly listed as Grundle


House. Late C15. 2 storeys: 4 bays: half-H form, with a central open hall
and 2 cross-wings. Timber-framed and rendered, with plaintiled roofs. Both
cross wings are jettied at first floor level on the front, and have an
overhanging tie-beam, supported on brackets, at eaves level ; the south wing is
also jettied along the rear. A large external red brick chimney-stack with
rebuilt top at the back of the hall range, and a C18 extension in rendered
brick, incorporating an internal chimney-stack, behind the north wing.
Various C19 lean-to extensions. 3-light and 2-light old casement windows with
a single bar to lights, and a reinstated 4-light mullioned window on the
ground storey of the north wing. Both doorways of the cross-entry at the
lower end of the hall remain, and are still in use. Fine interior, with much
original timbering. Service wing on south, formerly divided into 2: remains
of 2 doorways with arched spandrels; blocked original windows, including the
base of an oriel on the upper storey; plain crown-post roof. Former open hall
in 2 long bays: one main post of open truss with remains of shaft and carved
capital and base; cambered tie-beam; crown-post roof, the crown-post, now
within the roof-space, of cross-quadrate form, braced 4 ways at the head. The
roof timbers are extensively smoke-blackened. In the partition wall at the
north end of the hall is a dais beam with embattled ornament. The inserted
chimney-stack against the rear wall blocks one of the original long windows.
The main beam only of the inserted ceiling is exposed. In the north (parlour)
wing the ground storey room has ogee-moulded ceiling-joists, and a blocked
doorway in the partition wall with the hall. This part of the house,
originally roofed in line with the hall, was jettied out and reroofed at right
angles later, as extensions to the wall-plates show. The cambered tie-beam in
the upper room and the 2 original lengths of wall-plate have the remains of a
painted cresting decoration. Side-purlin roof above.
