II

House. Probably early C17, 1980s rear wing. Framed construction, the first floor underbuilt in Flemish bond brick with blue headers; first floor tile- hung; peg-tile roof; brick stack.

Plan: The house faces approximately west. 4 bays. 3 room lobby entrance plan, the 2 right hand rooms, hall in the centre, parlour to the right (south), heated from back-to-back fireplaces in an axial stack. The left hand room was divided between a dairy (to the front) and buttery with the stair rising against the rear wall. The late C20 rear wing is built on the site of an earlier wing. This probably post-dated the main range.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with a C19 panelled door to the lobby entrance to right of centre with a flat porch hood on brackets. The 2 left hand ground floor windows are C20 casements with square leaded panes. 3 first floor windows and ground floor windows right are circa early C18, the mullions flat-faced externally and bead-moulded internally. The windows are glazed with casements with square leaded panes, some preserving original window furniture including handmade spring catches and scrolled handles. Roof hipped at ends. The left (north) return has a small-pane C19 casement with a segmental arched head.

Interior: Well-preserved with good quality carpentry. The hall, in the centre, has a massive step stopped axial beam and step stopped chamfered joists. Open fireplace with a chamfered stopped lintel and brick jambs. The parlour, to the right has a plasterboard ceiling and a mid C19 timber chimney- piece. The left hand room has exposed joists and mortises in a crossbeam indicates a former partition on the long axis of the house. The stair is in its original position, rising originally from within the hall against the rear wall of the let hand end room. The first floor preserves ceiling carpentry and wall-frmaing with formed jowls to the posts.

Roof: Clasped purlin and queen post roof, the rafters of large scantling. Redundant mortises suggest that the roof may have been partially remodelled.

An attractive traditional house of the region with a well-preserved interior.
