YALDING BENOVER ROAD TQ 74 NW (north-east side) 4/49 Mill House II

House, formerly cottages, now house. Late C16 or early C17 or (possibly) earlier, with later alterations and C19 facade. Timber framed, weather- boarded, with plain tile roof. 4 timber-framed bays, built at right- angles to road and facing south. 2 storeys and attic, on rendered brick plinth. Half-hipped roof. Multiple brick ridge stack to left (west) end of left-central bay. Small hipped two-light dormer towards centre. Irregular fenestration of 3 three-light casements; one to left end, one towards centre, and one to right. Ground floor has one very small single light to left end, one four-light casement in moulded architrave towards centre, and one three-light casement to right end. Boarded door to left end of right end bay. Rear lean-to with low single-storey brick bakehouse? at right-angles towards left end, gabled, with gable end stack. Interior: exposed framing. Broad axial ground-floor joists to left end bay, with evidence for gable end jetty. Long axial beam apparently spanning both central bays, but chamfered only to right of a cross beam which spans left- central bay in front of stack, well to left of central bay-posts. Bevelled joists, of smaller scantling than in left end bay, tenoned to axial beam. Cross beam to right end of right-central bay morticed for relatively light- weight partition. Right end bay ceiled, with off-centre (later?) axial beam. Gunstock-jowled principal posts, except central pair which are un- jowled, unmorticed and without tie-beam. Tie-beam above left-central ground- floor cross-beam has no principal posts, but has stud partition under it, with tension braces. Clasped-purlin roof with diminishing principal rafters, windbraces, and vertical queen struts to collars. Three-light diamond mullion first-floor rear window to right end of right-central bay, and mortices for similar four-light ground-floor rear window adjoining right side of central principal post. C18 or C19 red and grey brick ground-floor fireplace to left of stack, and brick fireplace to right (between axial beam and front wall) with chamfered bressumer, one brick and one three-block stone jamb; older bricks to flue. Formerly known as Mill Cottages.
