II

House, now divided into 2. Late C16, C18/19 and C20. Timber-framed, roughcast rendered and colourwashed, peg-tile roof. Rectangular plan. One and a half storeys (though fenestration looks to be 2 storey and attic). C20 single storey addition to rear projecting at both N and S end with twin projections on E side. W front, heavy central stack of C17 type, now rendered. House division at this point, No.4 having central doorway but No.3 has room over it. No.3 - all windows C20 casements with diamond leaded panes. Ground floor, N-S 4-light window, doorway with gabled porch, (porch C20, timber, rendered with side lights), door C20 boarded with diamond light, window of 3-lights. First floor, N-S, window, 3-lights (approx in line with stack), second window of 3-lights. C20 dormer window with shaped barge boards to simple gable (peg-tiled), 2-light casement. No.4, ground floor, N-S, C20 bow window, 4-lights, glazing bars, each light 2x3 panes, C20 boarded door in line with stack. First floor, one 3-light casement window. N end elevation - ground floor, bow window, 3-lights, glazing bars, each 2x4 panes. Above, plain casement `picture' window. Rear elevation all C20, porch to S with panelled door on W side. House let into hill slope and only roof of early house revealed above C20 flat roof of extension. Old roof has C20 dormer window with flat roof. INTERIOR: S end bay C18/19 addition with late primary bracing onto earlier late C16 house of 3 bays with heavy framing and straight arched bracing. Roof of wind braced, side purlin type. Back to back principal fireplaces, rebuilt but heavy stack and site of doorway of No.4 imply that house was originally of 3-celled lobby entrance type with heated parlour at S end. Remains of bread oven at rear of stack. Interior woodwork much renewed but some C17 slender joists with diminished haunched tenons with pendant soffits remain (perhaps alteration). The house could be earlier C16 originally and of open hall type with one storeyed end but evidence of this phase cannot now be seen due to restoration.
