(Formerly Listed as:

Nos.72 AND 73)


House. C18 front range, early C17 rear. Timber-framed and
rendered in raised roughcast panels; old plaintiled roof with
a wood modillion eaves cornice.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, attic and cellar. 2 window range: 12-pane
sashes in flush cased frames, those to the ground storey
deeper than those above. One gabled dormer has a 2-light
small-paned casement window. A 6-panel door, up steps, in a
doorcase with plain reveals, a moulded and shouldered
architrave and a stilted cornice above a rectangular fanlight
with vertical glazing bars. Two 2-storey rear wings, on the
south with a 16-pane sash window to each storey in a flush
cased frame.
INTERIOR: cellars below the whole front range and under the
smaller rear wing on the north. Walling, perhaps C16, of
flint, brick and stone, very rough in part; C19 vaulted brick
ceilings. The interior was heavily restored in the 1950s when
some C19 partitioning and fireplaces were removed.
No original features remain visible in the front range: beams
boxed. An internal chimney-stack links with the 2-bay rear
wing on the south. This has main cross-beams with a small
chamfer and scroll stops and traces of red ochre colouring on
the ground storey and similar cross-beams in the room above,
where the main posts of the open truss and the wallplates are
exposed. A simple rafter roof to this wing. The attics of the
front range are plastered.
