TL8564SE ANGEL HILL 639-1/8/172 (North side) 07/08/52 No.16 (Formerly Listed as: ANGEL HILL No.16 Elcoats House)


House, now offices. Early C19 front, C16 and C17 core. Timber-framed interior, faced in white brick; slate roof with paired bracketed eaves cornice. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars; a front range with a rear wing at right-angles and later extensions. 5 windows to the 1st storey, 12-pane sashes in plain reveals with cement flat arches and stone sills; 2 tripartite windows to the ground storey, 12-pane sashes with diminished side-lights, cement heads and stone sills; three 9-pane sashes to the top storey. The central entrance door, up 2 steps, has 6 raised fielded panels, a rectangular fanlight and a doorcase with plain pilasters and cornice. INTERIOR: with some main beams and posts of the timber frame exposed. 2 cellars: on the east side, a C19 cellar which extends below the road; on the west, a C17 cellar below the rear wing. This has an arch-braced tie-beam supporting the ceiling, and one wall, which has the remains of a former bake-oven, is of re-used stone blocks, including part of a large column. Timber remains above the stonework seem to be fragments of a pre-C16 building. The rear wing, on a different level from the front, has had its roof replaced by a single pitch which runs into the rear slope of the main roof. In its end wall a cambered tie-beam, chamfered and stopped, implies that the wing was initially longer. An edge-halved and bridled scarf in one wallplate. On the top storey the rear wallplate of the front range is exposed, and one collar-beam indicates the roof-slope of the original attic, raised to a full storey in the early C19 when the house was refronted. A small C20 rear extension incorporates a sash window of c1700 with heavy ovolo-moulded glazing-bars.
