II

House. Late C17/early C18, altered c1820. MATERIALS: limestone rubble with Ham Hill stone plinth and dressings; slate roof with brick stacks to centre and north end, truncated one to the east gable end. PLAN: L-shape plan with entrance to the rear. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic; the right-angled rear facade is 3-window range; one window to the right wall, two to the left. Oldest windows have chamfered stone mullions and label moulds. The wing to the west is said to have been rebuilt in 1820 and the windows repositioned; single-storey canted bays added to north and south ends of the main building; the east wall of the main block has been raised, probably C18, and the windows re-used. A planked-and-studded door to the left of the left wing, under a flat stone porch on brackets, is hinged at the centre; windows to this angle are 3-light to the first-floor and 4-light below. A door to the rear of the left wing, adjoining the main block and possibly repositioned, has a Tudor-arched stone lintel under a flat, slabbed porch. The right return, on Hermitage Street, is high above the road with two 2-light stone-mullioned windows in a gable end to the right and one small C19 plate-glass sash at gutter level. INTERIOR: the room to the right (north) has an open fireplace with an oak lintel, to the internal wall to the left; to the right of it is the position of a spiral staircase, (evidence is on the upper floor, where the wall is concave) and two stopped chamfered cross-beams. The left wing and the rear, (south) room of the main block have a stone-flagged floor; the latter has one cross-beam, and elliptical arches flanking a fireplace on the east wall. The attic has collar trusses with diagonal ridge in notch; lower purlins have been removed; principal rafters to the east wall remain, and later, C18 or early C19 rafters run from the ridge to approx 1m higher at the wall-plate. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the street side of the garden to the north-west has a low rubblestone wall with Ham Hill stone coping, spearhead railings and a tall gate; approx 1m from the house the wall is stepped up to the height of the railings and then is swept up to meet the house.
