LITTLE OAKLEY HARWICH ROAD lM 22 NW (north-west side) 4/55 Cherry Tree Cottage


House. C16 or earlier, altered in C20. Timber framed, roughcast rendered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 2-3 bays facing SE, with axial stack at right end. C20 flat-roofed extension to right, extending to rear. One storey with attics. 2 C20 casements, and one C19/20 casement in gabled dormer. C20 door at front of gabled porch. Jowled posts, heavy studding. The left bay has an original floor of longitudinal joists of horizontal section, with a trimmed stair trap in the N corner. Large peg-holes in the studded partition indicate the former presence of a fixed bench on the hall side of it. The hall has a late C16 inserted floor comprising a chamfered transverse beam with step stops, a chamfered axial beam, and plain joists of horizontal section jointed to it with soffit tenons with diminished haunches, supported at their outer ends on pegged clamps. Large wood-burning hearth, altered c.1983. The tiebeam of the partition is severed for a framed doorway, indicating that originally the hall was open from ground to roof. The present brick stack probably replaces an earlier timber-framed chimney, and perhaps a still earlier open hearth. Roof structure not accessible. Renovated c.1983 without major alteration to structure.
