- II*

House, C16 with C19 and C20 additions. Timber framed with rendered infill and brick,and with a plain tile roof. Two storeys with attic and basement. T-shaped plan with later additions. Eastern side: of three builds. At left is a Cl9 and C20 single storey service wing of brick. To the right of this is the oldest part of the front, a single gabled bay with a brick basement with one ashlar surrounded window. Close-studded walling to ground floor which has a 3-light mullioned window with a transom and a similar arrangement to the first floor with angle braces. The jettying of the gable is coved and there is a 2-light attic window. To the right of this is a later C16 portion with close studding to the ground floor with tension braces and a middle rail above a brick basement. To the centre is the flush brickwork of a superimposed chimney of the C18 or C19 painted in simulation of timber framing. The first floor is jettied and supported on moulded brackets with a moulded bressumer. To the centre is a projecting 5-light window, the central 3-lights blocked by a continuation of the chimney. The attic is jettied and has similarly moulded brackets and bressumer to those seen at ground floor level. There is a 5-light window set in a gable at left which has chevron strutting. The right hand side (entrance front) has a gabled wing at left having close studding with a middle rail and tension braces to the ground floor with a 5-light mullioned window which has a transom. Jettied first floor with moulded bressumer and brackets. Similar middle-railed close-studding to the first floor and central 5-light window. Jettied gable above with moulded bressumer and chevron strutting to the lower panels and to either side of the tall 5-light mullioned and transomed window. To the right of this in the re-entrant angle with the southern wing is a brick 2-storey C19 addition. Porch doorway to the right hand side of this addition. The south face has a substantial Cl9 and C20 2-storey addition masking the lower body of the C16 building, but the jettied attic gable appears at right with a central 5-light window of which the lateral lights are now blocked and which has chevron strutting to either side. Interior Chamfered ceiling beams to ground floor rooms and one internal wall showing small framing and a 4-centred bressumer. The plan of the house appears to have developed from a rectangular gabled block at the north east in which an L-shaped block was added thus forming the T-shaped building to which additions were made in the C19 and C20. Much of the timber on the northern side appears to have been renewed but that on the western and southern gabled wings (including the southern attic window) appears original.
