House. Mid-C16, altered in C18. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3-bay main range facing SE, and 2-bay crosswing at left end, with an internal stack at the junction. C17/18 one-bay extension at right end with end stack, and C18 single-storey extension beyond, with wall of red brick in Flemish bond approx. 5 metres high forming the front elevation of it. Rear extensions of various dates, C18-20. 2 storeys with attics. Ground floor, 3 early C19 sashes of 16 lights. First floor, 3 early C19 sashes of 12 lights, and 2 similar sashes of the later C19. Crown glass. 6-panel door, the top 2 panels glazed, with plain doorcase and moulded flat canopy. 4 plastered small buttresses near the right end. The main range and crosswing are roofed continuously, treated as a hip at the left end, gabled to the rear. Jowled posts, close studding. The crosswing has roll-moulded binding and bridging beams, and roll-moulded joists of square section. A panel of original wattle and daub is exposed in the left wall. The left hearth is large and wood-burning, with simply moulded jambs and a roll-moulded mantel beam, repaired. The right hearth has been reduced in width, but is still large. The main range has chamfered beams with broach stops. At the right end it terminates in an open truss, apparently built originally against a crosswing which has been demolished and replaced by the C17/18 extension. Next to the end is a blocked original front doorway with 4-centred arched head, exposed internally. In the front and rear walls, at both levels, are exceptionally complete series of frieze windows of early glazed type, with hollow-moulded mullions. Edge-halved and bridled scarfs in all wallplates. Clasped purlin roof. Branching winder stair to attics. No jetty or evidence of former jetty. An inlet of the sea formerly extended to within a short distance of this house. RCHM 5.
