INGATESTONE AND FRYERNING TQ6599 723-1/14/385 HIGH STREET,Ingatestone (North West side) Nos.76
House, now 2 shops and house. C15 or earlier, altered in C18, extended in C19 and C20. Timber-framed, plastered and weatherboarded, roofed with concrete tiles and handmade red clay tiles; partly of brick, roofed with slate. Short hall range facing SE with C16 internal stack near left end in front of axis; 2-bay cross-wing to left, with C20 single-storey wing to rear. 3-bay cross-wing to right, and C15 or earlier 2-bay wing obliquely to rear left of it, following the shape of the site, jettied to the left, with an internal stack against the right wall. C20 single-storey extension between these rear wings, with flat roof. To left of the left cross-wing is a mid-C19 house of stock bricks, roofed with slate, with 2 stacks at right. C19 singie-storey lean-to to rear, and C20 conservatory/porch to rear of that.
Two storeys. The ground floor of the main building comprises 2 shops each with a central glazed door, and matching fascias across the 2 on paired consoles, early C20; the left window of the right shop is blocked. The first floor has a facade of painted brick, above the left shop are 2 early C19 sashes of 6+6 lights, reaching the eaves; above the right shop are 2 similar sashes set lower, with segmental brick arches. The roof has a gable hip at right, a plain hip at left; shaft of stack rebuilt in C19. To left is an attached house with a facade of painted brick, and one mid-C19 sash of 3+3 lights on each floor, the lower with a segmental brick arch. The left return is cement rendered above a brick plinth, with a 4-panel door and praIn~"ove-ilight' (numbered No. 76); hipped slate roof. The right return of the main range, and the right side of the rear right wing are weatherboarded, with C20 brickwork against the stack; original wide rafters and shaped sprockets visible 'below eaves; below the jetty of this wing one plain solid bracket O.14m wide is visible, original; most of the jetty is obstructed by the C20 extension; this wing has a gabled roof of handmade red clay tiles. The rear elevation of it has on the ground floor one early C19 tripartite sash, altered, and on the first floor one early C19 sash of 8+8 lights. INTERIOR: the ground floor is much altered for use as C20 shops, all surfaces plastered or boarded, beams boxed, all internal partitions removed. The first floor of the left cross-wing (occupied residentially) has chamfered wallplates and a chamfered and cambered tie-beam, all with step stops;one early C19 semi-elliptical arch over a door. The first floor of the right cross-wing has studs approximately 0.40m apart, and an edge-halved and bridled scarf in the left wallplate; one wide curved brace trenched inside the studs of the rear wall; both internal tie-beams missing; ceiled to collars at half-height. The first floor of the main range has C18 pine panelling, incomplete, and a complete C18 moulded wooden cornice; C18 2-panel pine door. The upper storey of the rear right wing has some wide hardwood floorboards, butt-edged. Most of the surfaces are plastered, but in the left wall 3 studs 0.22m wide are visible, and in the middle of the rear wall a post 0.30m wide. The substantial sizes of these elements, and of the one exposed jetty bracket, suggest a timber-framed structure of high quality and early date. The roofs are difficult to access, not inspected, but it is predictable that the left cross-wing originally had a crownpost roof, now altered to the present roof on a left-right axis, and that the roof of the right cross-wing has been altered to side-purlin form. The main range may have been raised, in which case it will have a roof of the C17 or C18. An original roof is likely in the rear right wing. Chimneys now faced with hardboard may have hearths or grates of architectural value.
