Manorial complex, a 'Unit System' pair of houses, C15, altered in C17 and C19.
Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. L-plan,
consisting of hall house with 2 crosswings on NW-SE alignment, the service wing
at the SE, and to NW of it a 5-bay house extending to the SW, forming an L-plan.
Large chimney stack at the junction, c.1600. Axial stack in SW wing, external
stack at end of SE wing, enclosed by false outer wall in C19. Single-storey
extension to SE, C19. SW elevation, 2 sections of SE range set slightly forward
with gabled roofs. Door of 6 fielded panels in recessed porch, 2 tripartite
double-hung sash windows of 4-16-4 lights, one double-hung sash window of 12
lights. First floor, 3 double-hung sash windows of 12 lights and a pair of
8 lights each. 3 sets of carved bargeboards, and fretted bargeboards over
single storey extension. In end of SW wing, one splayed bay of 5 double-hung
sash windows on each floor. Some crown glass. General effect is of pronounced
C19 Gothic style. Some framing exposed internally. On SE side of NW crosswing,
originally forming the 'high end' of the medieval hall, curved tension bracing
trenched into heavy studs, and first floor supported on pegged clamps. Outer
walls largely rebuilt in C17 with primary straight bracing. One continuous
roof built on NW-SE alignment, clasped purlin construction, C17. In SW wing,
plain-chamfered axial beams with step stops, exposed joists of horizontal
section jointed to beams with soffit tenons. Roof of this wing rebuilt in C17,
butt purlin construction. Fireplace with 4-centred brick arch on SE side of
main stack, first floor level. Carved bargeboards, late C16, have been re-used
in the roof of the SW wing. Originally this complex comprised 2 houses arranged
at right angles, both of manorial status but different in date and type, for
2 related households occupying the same land. Later they were combined, altered
in the C17 to provide 2 full storeys throughout, and refashioned externally
in the C19. Moated site. RCHM 2.
