Details

TL 3653 GREAT EVERSDEN HIGH STREET (North east side) 12/86 The Homestead 22.11.67 GV II

House. Early C16. Timber framed, plaster rendered, and tiled roof with stack slightly north of the ridge with some rebuilt upper courses. External stack at west end with two alabaster panels. Each has a quatrefoil with a shield. Single range of six bays, and a narrower chimney bay. Two storeys with the south side jettied at first floor, except for two bays at the west end. There is internal evidence that these two bays have always been open at yround floor level on south side possibly having an outshut. This has now been demolished and replaced by modern brickwork. Three C19 windows at first floor and three shuttered windows at ground floor. Doorway leads to cross-passage, with an opposing doorway in the north wall. The rear wall has a six-light window with hollow moulded mullions to the original hall, and at first floor two, three-light diamond mullion windows. At the east gable end there is a window with shafted rectangular mullions. Interior: The framing is of substantial and uniform scantling with closely set studs. There are shallow arch braced tie beams. The clasped side purlin roof has wind bracing. There are broad stop chamfers to spine beams and joists, particularly those of the room at the east end of the house. Clunch and brick inglenooks hearths at ground floor. At first floor small, chamber hearths including one with four centred arch, chamfered, of clunch. The cross-passage retains the screen with an original doorway leading to the hall. Four centred arch. Intersecting main beams in the room at the west end. Staircase leading off the cross-passage, possibly turned round. A rebate for a doorway leading into the present staircase suggests a later alteration. The staircase however is of the original solid wooden treads.
