Farmhouse. Late C16 enlarged and floor inserted in hall before 1631,
brick S bay built in late C17 when E wing added or rebuilt and rest of
front heightened in timber framing, ground floor front of N part fronted
in brick in C18. Timber frame with red brick infill to upper floor and
casing to ground floor, and red and blue brick S end. Steep old red tile
roofs. A large, T-shaped, 2-storeys, attic and cellar house on street
front facing W. As symmetrical 3 windows front with 2 windows to
left of gabled tiled porch to front door, in line with large internal
chimney with heavy corbelled top. 3-light flush small-paned casement
windows (2-light on 1st floor to left of porch). Brick front has a
plinth and projecting floor band. The RH part is of chequered red and
blue brick and has vertical blue brick decorative bands flanking the
windows and each end, and dividing the panels between. Gauged flat
arches, plastered. Blocked small window over porch. Roughcast N gable
with attic window: S gable red tilehung. Interior has narrower N parlour
bay one step higher with squared axial beam and chamfered joists with
run-out stops. Unusually long hall bay next to S has a chamfered axial
beam with bar stops and chamfered joists with ogee stops suggesting that
a new elaborate inserted floor was provided when the large internal
chimney, staircase behind it, and brick S extension with SE diagonal
corner fireplaces on both floors were constructed in the later C17. This
created a lobby entry plan house with inner room and rear kitchen wing
with gable chimney. 2-panel early C18 doors in hall contemporary with
brick facing to ground floor of timber framed part. (RCHM Typescript).
