922/0/10073 BURES ROAD
16-AUG-07 Creems

House, C16 with C17, C19 and C20 extensions and alterations to the east and rear. Timber framed with plain-tiled gable and catslide roofs, brick end-stack to the west and two off centre stacks.

Two storeys with C20 casement windows on all elevations, some in original openings with mullions in situ. Crosswing at east end projecting to rear. Further to the east is the former C19 dairy and C20 extensions.

A timber frame of C16 and later date is fully exposed on the interior, comprising close studding of substantial scantling. Pegged mortice and tenon and side-halved scarf joints.

Original cross passage, lightly remodelled when a chimney and fireplace were inserted, with original openings to the former hall to the right. The west gable end of the hall has been rebuilt probably in the later C16 or early C17. Intact front and rear wallframes, a blocked door opening and mullioned window in rear wall. Two C17 or C18 timber battened doors on ground and first floor. Two service rooms to east, one with substantial brick chimney breast with open fire place. All ground floor rooms have chamfered bridging beams, studwork, wall posts and midrails and the sole plate is apparent in most rooms.

On the first floor exposed framing throughout including arched braces, exposed wall plates, studwork, jowled storey posts and tie beams. The roof over the main building comprises coupled common rafters, pegged in place, with collars. Crown-post construction said to be over crosswing. A number of lathe and plaster partitions remain in the roof space.

Creems is recommended for designation for the following principal reasons:
* It is a remarkably intact example of a C16 vernacular building.
* It displays good craftsmanship and local building traditions in the construction of the timber frame.
* It retains significant fixtures and fittings including mullion windows and late C17 or early C18 doors.
* The C16 plan-form is legible and adds to our understanding of domestic vernacular architecture of this date.
