TL 3811 STANSTEAD ABBOTS ROYDON ROAD (south side) Stanstead Abbots village 13/30 No 37 (Abbotts House)


House. Circa 1600 incorporating N wing of late medieval house of c1500 and rebuilding the hall range with 2-storeys throughout. Gothicised in early C19, Edwardian bay windows. Timberframed and stuccoed, with stucco cut back to expose frame on front. Steep slate roof. 2-storeys and attics, 3-windows long. 2-storeys C19, stuccoed, gabled porch with sash windows on each face on upper floor and arch headed doorway with dripmould. 6-panel door with fanlight. 5-light small-paned canted 2-storey bay windows each side of porch with moulded cornice to flat roof. 3 small gabled dormers in roof slope with cusped bargeboards and finials similar to porch. Large central chimney to right of right-hand bay. Old N bay has a C19 3-light flush casement window with pointed head and moulded label, on each floor. Single storey slate roofed stucco extension at S end with moulded flat doorhood on shaped brackets. The original house presumably had an open hall with a 2-storeys bay at the N end. This was probably a parlour, since the c1600 2-storeys house replacng the open hall incorporated it, provided a chimney shared with the new hall and probably had a cross-passage in line with the later porch, and an unheated service bay at the S where a single-storey kitchen was added on later and has been rebuilt. The house was given its churchwarden's Gothic appearance in the early C19 (RCHM Typescript).
