GV II*

Shop, C16 and early C17. Timber-framed and rendered with gabled roofs. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attics; 3-bay range; and extensive rear extensions. 2 large gabled bays flanking smaller gabled bay with, behind the north-west pair, a taller roof parallel to the street. The north-west gabled wing has moulded barge-boards and a semicircular-headed C19 fixed window to attic. The 1st floor has a C19 canted bay window with sashes with central vertical glazing bar and felted hipped roof. On the ground floor a C19 shop front with canted-out fascia, cant sides, recessed cant-sided entrance of large panes, takes up about half the frontage. The central gable is smaller and has moulded barge-boards and a C19 casement fixed-light window in 2 parts, above and below the old tie beam. Ground floor has canted flat-roofed bay with sashes with one vertical glazing bar. The south-east gable has similar barge-boards and semicircular-headed window to attic and is jettied on large ornamental brackets. The 1st floor has a canted bay window under jetty and sashes with 2 vertical glazing bars. The 1st floor is also jettied on hewn posts with moulded bressumer and 2 projecting joist ends with mouldings. The ground floor has wide carriage arch with heavy curved arch braces and C20 four-panel door in moulded frame with flight of 3 steps. On the rear the carriage-arch block is gabled as is the central wing which projects further towards the north. Attached to the 1st floor of the south-east wing is a black weatherboarded structure with slate lean-to roof and C19 sash windows. Behind the central block are 2 lean-to roofed structures, at right-angles to one another, of black weatherboarding, one with slate and other with plain tiles. On the rear of the north-west wing is a large C20 flat-roofed extension and slate gable-roofed rendered extension on its northern end. INTERIOR: the central block is the older part and is a C16 cross-wing with arch-braced side-purlin roof, formerly jettied to the front. The structure seems to incorporate much reused timber. In the early C17 this was enveloped as part of a high quality house with contemporary carriage arch. The north-west wing had ovolo-frieze windows either side of an oriel (recent

renovation). The central wing has internal wall bracing and was refitted with ovolo windows in C17 remaking. The south-east wing has central A-frame truss, side-purlin roof with straight wind braces and long straight internal wall braces. The 1st-floor bay window structure incorporates ovolo mullions from former oriel in this position. This wing also had small ovolo-mullioned windows each side of the central oriel. Inside these a C19 cast-iron Art Nouveau fireplace and boarded C17 door. A well preserved and unrestored example of a town house of the period. (RCHME: Essex Central and South-west: London: 1921-: 181:6).
