BRAMFORD VICARAGE LANE TM 1246 9/95 Street Farm Cottage II

House, early C16. Restored c.1970. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered.

The upper floor is jettied on 2 sides, the rear gable clad in C18 red brick.

Concrete tiled roof with axial chimney of red brick. Mainly C20 casements.

Single-storey gabled entrance porch added c.1980 with boarded stable door. A good quality timber-framed house, but probably only a parlour cross-wing to an originally larger house. The jettied upper floor joists support a moulded bressumer, and at the corner is a partly exposed corner-post. This is well carved with a thistle and other mouldings, and has the initial 'W' on the exposed face, probably for the surname of the owner. In the parlour the main beams are rib moulded and have trailing leaf carvea soffits. Plain crown-pose roof. Very closely spaced studding, and one surviving rib-moulded mullioned window at 1st floor. Various small gabled and lean-to extensions of C17 or C18. Until mid C20 the house had been 2 cottages; it probably ceased to be a farmhouse in C19.
