3/2 Tannis Court, and Tannis Court House -
House, now 2 houses. Early C18, extended to rear in early C19 and late C20. Composite construction with oak beams and chamfered posts, and timber framed partitions, within brick external walls with some embedded posts. Exterior painted with parallel hipped roofs of old red tiles. Rear extensions (Tannis Court House) of brick to similar form. A 2-storeys, square, double-pile house facing S with extensions to same height at rear. Central entrance, end chimneys plan,but large external E chimney with offsets appears original while small external W chimney probably dates from an early C19 refronting of the main block with dentilled eaves and 2 square 2-light casement windows over 3 round-arched recesses containing the door flanked by 2 small bay windows. Early C18 2-light mullioned leaded casements remainon the side walls. A picturesque small house of special interest as illustrating the transition from timber-framed to all-brick construction.
