TL 5460 BOTTISHAM HIGH STREET (South West Side) 11/19 No. 106


Farmhouse 1725 (referred to in a building contract of 14 October 1725 between Trustees of St Bartholomews Hospital and William Chapman and William Roberts). In c1875 the facade of this house was obscured by the addition of a new range to the front. Original house of red brick, English bond with a steeply pitched gabled roof, tiled. End stacks. Symmetrical plan of kitchen and parlour flanking a narrower hall and stairbay. Two storeys and attics. The fenestration to the gable ends is later. the front range c1875 is of grey brick with a tiled roof and end stacks. Two storeys. Raised and shouldered surrounds to three hung sashes of four panels each. Central doorway with raised surround and round headed arch. At the rear is a service range, early C18, with a storey added and roof raised. Red brick, English bond. There is a straight joint between this range and the 1725 block. Within the curtilage are four early C19 cast iron boundary posts each with a bell shaped finial and a cartouche with initials ST B.H. One remains in its original location. Inside there is an original closed-string staircase with turned balusters, moulded rail and square newel with finial. In the service range there is a tie beam, probably reused, with mortices for uprights. Building work has confirmed that the openings shown in the elevation to the 1725 building contract are the same as those in the original house. These would have been cross-frame casements. The principal difference between this house and the elevation shown in the drawing attached to the 1725 building contract is that the house was built with a gabled rather than a hipped roof.
