SK 1615-1715 ALREWAS C.P. WILLIAM IV ROAD (East side)

9/63 Park House


House. Probably C15, extended possibly in the C17, further extended
and remodelled in the mid-C19; an C18 agricultural building was
incorporated into the house in the mid-C20. Timber framed, much rebuilt
in red brick; plain tile roof; brick ridge stack, lateral external stack
and external gable end stack. Originally a T-shaped open hall and
crosswing plan, the cross-wing of 2 bays, aligned east-west and the hall
range probably a single bay aligned north-south facing west, the hall
range was probably extended to the south in the C17 by a single bay and
in the C19 by a further bay, an C18 former agricultural building immediately
to the east of the crosswing and on the same alignment is now linked to the
house. West elevation: 2 storeys with dentilled eaves, crosswing to the
left with hipped roof, hall range to the right; 1:3 bays, 24-pane and
16-pane glazing bar sashes with horns and segmental heads; door to left
hand of hall range. Straight joint in brickwork to right of centre.
North elevation: crosswing to the right, former agricultural building
to the left, C20 glazing bar casements and a large lateral chimney stack
to the right. Left hand gable of crosswing has timber framing, collar
and tie beam roof truss with one pair of purlins and ridge piece and
closely spaced studs throughout. Exposed queen strut roof truss to left
hand gable of former agricultural building. Interior: a large amount of
exposed timber framing, closely spaced studs and square panels with
straight braces and curved wind braces. The north bay of the hall
range is contemporary with the crosswing, the surviving framing in each
is similar in character, the present timber framed ceiling of the north
bay shows signs of being a later insertion of circa 1700, and is probably
contemporary with the large open brick fireplace against the south wall;
the 2 roof trusses over the north bay have queen struts, that to the south
of the central bay has 3 vertical struts between tie beam and collar and
V-struts above the collar, it is probably later than the other two, the
central truss of the crosswing has raking queen struts.
