TL80NW WYCKE HILL, Little Maldon 574-1/1/277 (North West side) 24/09/71 Maldon Hall and Mallards (Formerly Listed as: Maldon Hall)


Large house, and small dwelling in former service accommodation. c1500, C18 and early C19. Part timber-framed, part red Flemish-bond brick and painted brick; roofs of plain tiles and Welsh slate; Gault brick stacks. Very complex structure of many builds. Moated site. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with small cellar. On the south-east corner is a rectangular painted-brick block with slate hipped roof with lead hips and ridge detail. This has an off-centre Gault brick ridgeline stack and cast-iron verandah with glass roof and ornamental posts, on its south face which continues across the adjoining block. The east elevation of this structure has three 16-pane sash windows on the 1st floor, all with painted flat-arched heads. The ground floor has 3 similar, deeper windows. The south elevation has 2 blind window recesses on 1st floor and a door to ground floor. Adjoining to the west is the short end face of a long north/south range, being the earlier core of the house. The south face has a hipped slate roof behind a plain parapet, and a flat dormer with 8-pane, sash window. The 1st floor has a wide blind recess, in centre and 12-pane sash window. The ground floor has a 16-pane sash with sill near the floor behind a continuation of the verandah, the floor of which is of coloured tiles. The western elevation of this range is clad in red Flemish-bond brick and has a slight break one-third distance from the south-west corner. The long roof is hipped at both ends and is clad in plain tiles and has a large Gault brick stack, off-centre on its ridge. The 1st floor has one small-paned tripartite sash window, two 12-pane sashes, an 8-pane sash, a large 16-pane sash and a small window with cross-glazing pattern, most with rubbed brick arched heads; mid-wall there is a tall staircase window with 8 panes and a curious double-curved rubbed brick arch. The ground floor has a sash with central vertical glazing bar, a small-paned French window with side lights, a small plain sash, a 9-pane sash and an arched cellar opening. Linked to the northern end of this range is a small rectangular red brick building with hipped plain tile roof

(part of Mallards). This former outbuilding has a wide lean-to dormer with two C20 windows on west side and a single lean-to dormer on east, with slate roofs. The south flank wall has a tall stack and there is a C20 conservatory against west wall. The rear (east) of this building is linked to a former cross-wing at the end of the main core block. The west elevation of this has a truncated roof in slate, rendered walls and a small-paned tripartite sash on the 1st floor. The ground floor is fronted by a stone-flagged yard, partly contained by a wall and has a kitchen door with hood on consoles and C19 cast-iron wall-mounted ?pump. Slate-roofed gabled extension and with a further single-storey red brick extension with plain tile gabled roof to north. INTERIOR: the long north/south range is an in-line 2-storeyed timber-framed house of the late C15 or early C16. Remnants of a crown-post roof survive, with 3 simple crown posts with lateral braces, under a late side-purlin roof. One truss of this was that formerly over the upper chamber. The posts are jowled with flat chamfered bridging joists and spine beams, and one partition is partly exposed with a flat chamfered doorway. At the north end a very large jowled post is exposed, probably part of the earlier cross-wing. This has, in part, a C17 floor with substantial bridging joist and mantel-beamed fireplace of remarkable width, now partially infilled. An adjoining kitchen in the early C19 western range has a wide contemporary fireplace with large keystone and wall shelving. Interior generally very complete with numerous early C19 features including doors, architraves and cornices. The south-west room has simple panelling and there are reeded arches on ground- and 1st-floor hallways. Windows to south elevation have internal folding shutters
