GV II*

House, possibly built as a chantry priest's house. Late C15 with early C17 alterations. MATERIALS: Ham Hill stone rubble, slate roof with C15 lateral stack to left-of-centre and gable ends. PLAN: 3-unit through-passage plan with central hall, parlour to the right and service end to the left. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 5-window range. Windows and doors to front and rear are various C20, those to the first floor are mostly at eaves level under wooden lintels. To the left of the lateral stack is a C15 Ham Hill stone buttress. C18 stone mullioned window to the left. INTERIOR: the room to the right (north) has a C15 quartered ceiling, the moulding on the substantial lateral beam is similar to that of the wall beams to front and rear, the moulding of the subsidiary beam runs out to a point at the crossing. The room to the left of the former passage has a heavy chamfered cross-beam resting on a massive limestone lintel to a late C16/early C17 open fireplace; this has a shallow ovolo-moulded Tudor arch with sunk spandrels, the mouldings have decorative stops above floor-level. The room to the far left has an axial beam and parts of a timber-framed partition. The room to first-floor right has feet of 3 jointed crucks with moulded arch braces, moulded principal rafters between and slightly chamfered trenched purlins. The fascia of the wall plate is carved with an undulating line which has quatrefoils in circles flanked by cusped mouchettes to each section. Collar-truss roof with trenched purlins over central rooms. Most of the doors to the first floor are early C18 with 4 raised and fielded panels and H and L hinges. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the garden which is approx 30m square, to the west of the house, has spearhead railings with double gates along East Street. The plan and features of this C15 two-storey house bear strong similarities to late medieval chantry priests' houses in Somerset.
