MENDLESHAM TAN OFFICE TM 16 SW 5/70 Duncons (formerly 29.7.55 listed as Tan Office Cottage)

GV II Former farmhouse, latterly 2 cottages, now one house. Early C17. C19 remodelling to form 2 cottages, early 1970's renovation. Timber framed and rendered, roof of concrete plaintiles. 2 cells; evidence for further work to west, suggesting that perhaps this range was built against the now missing service end of the adjacent house (qv. Item 5/71). 2 storeys and attic. Projecting gable to east. The main feature of the exterior is the survival of 4 original projecting upper windows, each of 4 lights, with ovolo-moulded mullions and a transom. A further similar window in the east gable end was replaced in 1980's. Other windows are small-paned casements, all of 1970's. Central gabled porch to north has boarded door with cover battens. 2 C19 internal stacks with cross-axial shafts. A Quaker chapel was attached to the north of the house in C18 and stood until late C19. Interior. Fully exposed frame. Parlour has fine close studding and plain ceiling joists. In the hall, more altered studding and an intact chamfered-joist ceiling. Original upper ceilings have plain joists. Original stack removed C19 and replaced by 2 smaller stacks, one intruding into the parlour cell. Intact roof has a single row of clasped purlins with 2-way wind bracing.
