KELVEDON HIGH STREET (north-west side) No. 195 (Heigaines) TL 86368 19115 8/192 GV II

House. C16 or earlier, extended in C19, much altered in C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Main range facing SE, with C19 axial stack near left end. 2 adjacent C19 wings to rear, with truncated C19 external stack to left, and C20 external stack at end of right wing. One storey with attics. 2 C20 casements, and 3 more in gabled dormers. C20 door with side-lights. Half-hipped gambrel roof on main range, gablet hip on left rear wing, full hip on right rear wing. All rear windows are C20 casements. Chamfered axial beam supported in internal stack at left end, with lamb's tongue stops and introduced post at right end. Joists of horizontal section with step stops jointed to beam with soffit tenons with diminished haunches. As the wall framing is concealed by plaster it is not clear whether this is an inserted floor of c.1570 in an earlier building, or part of the original construction. The axial stack originally had coal-burning hearths to left and right; right hearth now blocked, converted to a recess facing to left. Plain joists of vertical section in left bay. Roof rebuilt as a gambrel in C18/19. The rear wings have thin studding and primary straight bracing. Plain joists of vertical section in left rear wing, much disturbed by C20 alterations. Documentary evidence from 1581 (B.L. Kentish, Kelvedon and its Antiquities, 1974, 72, A.A. Dibben, Title Deeds, 1971, 26).
