2/315 OLD MULLIONS

II

House. Probably early/mid C17. Late C20 additions. Framed construction, mostly weatherboarded, partly underbuilt in brick; peg-tile roof; brick stack.

Plan: South-facing. A 3 room lobby entrance plan with a rear left outshut and 2 C20 additions on the south front. The original house is heated from back-to-back fireplaces in an axial stack to left of centre, unheated service room to the right. A narrow bay immediately to the right (east) of the existing stack suggests that the house may have had a smoke bay preceding the stack and it is possible that the basic structure is earlier than the C17 but has been heavily remodelled and re-roofed at that date.

Exterior: 2 storeys. The front (south) elevation of the original is largely obscured by the C20 additions. Roof gabled at ends; axial stack with 4 staggered shafts with corbelled brick cornices. Asymmetrical, 4 windows wide. To the left C20 French windows on the first floor open on to the roof of a flat-roofed single-storey C20 addition. Probably C20 4-pane casements alongside the French windows to the right, similar window to the far right on the first floor. Gabled single-storey C20music room wing projecting at right angles to ground floor right. The rear elevation has a catslide roof to the rear left outshut and the house is entered into the return of the outshut. 2 first floor mullioned windows, set high under the eaves on the rear wall of the main range have diagonally-set mullions and C20 external glazing.

Interior: Exposed carpentry of a plain and rather rough character. Open fireplaces with oak lintels and brick jambs. The hall has an axial beam and a crossbeam, the latter, about 1 metre in front of (east of) the fireplace corresponds to the narrow bay in the wall framing. Wall-framing with formed jowls to the wall posts.

Roof: Clasped purlin roof, the timbers of slender scantling.
