Formerly known as: Aaron the Jew's House STEEP HILL.
Also known as: Norman House STEEP HILL.
House, now a house and 2 shops. c1170, with late C18 and C19
alterations. Restored 1878 and C20. Dressed stone and brick,
with pantile roof and single brick gable and valley stacks.
Brick coped gables, gable band, wooden gutter on iron
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys plus basement and garrets, 4 bays. Double
range plan. Front has an off-centre round headed doorway with
single shafts and crocket capitals, and a truncated gabled
hood on mask corbels. To the left, a part-glazed panelled door
in a moulded frame, C18, and to its left a shallow bow window
with shutters. Beyond, a small casement, partly blocked.
To right, a shop window, C19, with pilaster surround and
cornice. Above the door, and to its left, a glazing bar sash
with a wooden lintel. Beyond, to right, a keel moulded recess
with hoodmould, containing a mainly renewed double round
headed window with enriched sill band. Beyond, to left, a
2-light sliding sash with wooden lintel.
South front, to Christ Hospital Terrace, has 2 gables. To
left, a pair of doors with wooden lintel. To right, a plain
C18 wooden doorcase with a 6-panel door, and a single glazing
bar sash. Above, to left, a glazing bar sash with a wooden
lintel in an altered opening. To right, a smaller glazing bar
sash. Above again, a glazing bar sash to left, in an altered
opening with wooden lintel, and to right, 2 similar windows.
In each gable peak, a segment headed blocked window.
INTERIOR has a C12 chamfered doorway and tunnel vaulted
basement. Dogleg stair with winder, fielded panelled doors and
hob grate, C18.
This building is particularly important as an example of C12
domestic architecture: Lincolnshire has most of the surviving
examples. Although it was formerly known as Aaron the Jew's
house, its connection with him is erroneous.
