4/35 Sunnyside 7.12.62 (formerly listed as Vicar's House Melverley)
Estate house. Probably late C17 or earlier, thoroughly remodelled, probably in the late C19/early C20. Flint; thatched roof with deep eaves and a plain ridge, gabled at ends; left end stack and back to back fireplaces in an axial stack to right of centre, all with rendered shafts. Plan: Single depth plan, 3 rooms wide with baffle entry against the axial stack to right of centre, lean-to adjoins at left end. The plan form and internal detail suggest at least a late C17 date but the late C19/early C20 phase involved substantial alterations. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical front with 3 first floor gabled dormers with late C19/early C20 shaped pierced bargeboards matching those on the left gable end and 5 ground floor windows all with flat cut stone arches. Wide open-fronted thatched porch on posts with pretty lattice sides. C19 or C20 plank front door to the left under the porch; to the right, an additional vertical post to the porch forms a doorframe with shaped spandrels facing a small bench. All windows glazed with C20 3- light casements with square leaded panes in the outer lights. Interior: The first room from the right has a chamfered axial beam with a scroll stop of a late C17 character. A timber post embedded in the rear wall may be a cruck foot but there was no sign of its partner on the front wall during renovations. Open fireplace with a rough timber lintel, other chimney-pieces late C19 or C20. At the west end of an outstanding village.

Images of England
Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
