- II*

House, probably containing former upper floor hall-house. C14 with additions of
C15/C16 and elevations of C19. Timber-framing and rendered on rendered plinth.
Plain tiled roof, hipped to left with off-ridge stack to front, off-centre to
right. Wing to left at rear with coupled and stacks. 2 storeys; irregular
fenestration of 3 windows on 1st floor and 4 windows on ground floor, casements
with segment-heads. Entrance with late C20 half-glazed door in right return
front. Interior: Remains of upper floor hall with moulded beams and cornice in
bedroom of rear wing. Uniform scantling roof above with braced collars but no
purlins and no evidence of there having been any purlins. Evidence of timber-
framing throughout building. Large stop-chamfered wooden bressumers to fire-
places in both drawing and dining rooms on ground floor. This building is listed
II* due to the rarity of upper floor timber-framed halls in Kent and its early
date, probably 1350-1400.
