Listing Text


1/95 3/95 Strudes


House, mid to late Cl7 with a probably C19 dairy left and a late C20 extension
right. Brick: the main facade, is of irregular bonding giving an effect of
horizontal banding in vitrified brick. The rear facade is in English bond.
The left gable wall is partly in rubble. The C20 work is in Flemish bond brick
and the dairy is rendered and whitewashed. Thatched roof, gabled left and half
hipped right brick stacks to ends of original range, that to the left being
C19 and that to the right possible original. Originally symmetrical;2 storeys,
3 bays to original house with single bay extension right, 3 light C19/20
casements with horizontal glazing bars except to the upper floor central
which has a 2 light casement with full glazing bars. Central C20 part-glazed
plank door under thatched porch. To the ground floor of the rear facade are
2 ovolo-moulded, timber, mullioned windows of 3 lights modified to accept
later casements. The brickwork is built directly on these without lintels
or arches demonstrating that they were intended to be structural. Internally
there is an open fireplace with a chamfered, shallow 4-centred head timber
bressummer and medium chamfered beams with run-out and step and hollow curve
stops. The roof timbers are said to be original (RCHM, Dorset, vol III, p 129,
no 14)
