Details

AHSWATER SX 39 NE 3/3 Braddon - II House. C17 core, partly rebuilt in the circa early C18, alterations of the late 1940s. Colourwashed plastered cob on stone rubble footings, corrugated asbestos roofs hipped at the right end, gabled at the left end. 2 rendered stacks on ridge at the junction between the 2 blocks. The original C17 plan may have been a 2 or 3 room and cross passage with an unheated lower end, the hall heated from a stack at the inner end of the hall and a projecting rear stair turret to the hall. The right-hand block of the present building represents the lower end hall and stair turret, the cross passage partition no longer exists. In the circa early C18 the inner room (the present left-hand block) was either added or completely rebuilt with a stack at the right end abutting the hall stack. The roof was raised in the 1940s when the thatch was replaced by corrugated asbestos. A break in the plane of the front suggests that the lower end may also have been rebuilt, it is now used for storage and there is no access from the loft over into the main part of the house. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front, the left-hand block under a lower roof. A gabled brick porch and C19 6-panel front door lead into the former passage on the front to the right. There is a further entrance into the left-hand block through a single-storey lean-to with a slate roof. Ground floor window to left of porch is a 3-light circa late C19 casement, 3 panes per light. Elsewhere the fenestration is C20 with enlarged embrasures, including 3 first floor gabled dormers. There is a loft entrance to the right return into the loft over the lower end. The rear stair turret is rounded under a catslide roof. There were probably originally no rear windows as the house is built against the slope of the land. Interior The right-hand block has circa late C17 roof trusses with straight collars halved and pegged into roughly chamfered principal rafters which are halved and pegged at the apex. 1940s trusses above the C17 roof. The hall fireplace has been rebuilt in the C20. The inner room floor has been lowered and the stone rubble jambs of the fireplace have been rebuilt and do not meet the straight cut stops of the chamfered timber lintel. The stair turret has a timber newel stair.
