5/100 Timewells House including cider
- house adjoining to north-east and
front garden walls

House. C17 origins, remodelled and enlarged in the early C19, a late C19 extension,
another circa 1920, some modernisation circa 1980. Plastered stone rubble, maybe
brick in places; stone rubble or brick stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; slate
Plan: L-plan house. The main block faces south-east and has a 3-room plan
containing the 2 principal rooms, one each side of an entrance hall which contains
the main stair. The main rooms have gable-end stacks. To rear of the left room is
a 1-room plan late C19 extension also with an end stack. To rear of the right room
the kitchen wing projects at right angles. The axial kitchen stack has been
demolished at ground floor level in order to enlarge the kitchen into the circa 1920
extension beyond. A 1-room plan service wing on the right end is on the same axis
as the main block but is set back from the main front. In front of this and on an
oblique angle to the main block the cider house projects forward as far as the road.
The low service wing, the kitchen and maybe the right room of the front block are
C17 but too little C17 work remains to determine the layout of the C17 house. The
cider house might be C18 but is probably early C19 and contemporary with the
rebuilding of the main house. House is 2 storeys.
Exterior: main block has a symmetrical 3-window front of ground floor 16-pane
sashes and first floor 4-pane sashes. All are horned and date from circa 1986.
Central doorway contains an early C19 6-panel door behind contemporary cast iron
trellis porch. Roof is gable-ended. The cider house to right has a central doorway
containing a C19 6-panel door. It is gable-ended onto the road where there is
another doorway and a first floor casement window.
Interior: is mostly the result of the early C19 rebuild and there is a great deal
of joinery and other detail from that time including the open string stick baluster
stair. The kitchen however has a C17 crossbeam with deep soffit chamfers and there
are similar in the service block except these have step stops. Roofs not inspected
except over the service block and cider house, both of which could be C18 or C19.
The front garden is enclosed by a high stone rubble wall which includes a pair of
square section gateposts with ball finials.
