House. C17, altered in C18, extended in C19. Timber framed and plastered with
facade of red brick in Flemish bond, roofed with handmade red plain tiles;
extension of gault brick in Flemish bond, roofed with slate. Main range facing
NW, with 3 rear stacks, and original wing to rear left, splayed to a
parallelogram plan to follow the line of Horn Lane. Early C19 gault wing to
rear centre, with internal stack at right side. Late C19 wing to rear right,
plastered and roofed with slate, with 2 axial stacks; the 3 wings are adjacent.
2 single-storey extensions to right. 2 storeys and attics. The facade of the
left 2/3 of the house is set forward, with a 5-window range of C18 sashes of 12
lights with flat arches of gauged brick and crown glass; one to left of the door
has an altered lower sash. Central 8-panel door, the 2 bottom panels flush, the
others fielded, in doorcase with panelled jambs and soffit, plaster pilasters,
entablature and moulded pediment; this facade has been pecked to roughen the
texture. The right part is of smooth handmade brick of comparable age, with one
C19/20 sash of 12 lights in each storey, and similar arches, and continues to
the right with a stepped parapet to conceal a lean-to extension. 3 C19
casements in gabled dormers, and one in right hip. Fully hipped roofs. The
left return and rear elevation of the left wing are bricked up to first-floor
level, plastered above. On the upper storey of the rear elevation C18 and early
C19 sashes remain on all 3 wings, with crown glass; one of 16 lights on the left
wing, 2 of 12 lights with flat arches of gauged brick on the middle wing, one of
12 lights and one of 10+10 lights on the right wing. The timber frame is mainly
concealed by interior finishes, but one sharply jowled post is exposed at the
rear right corner. The beams, where exposed and unmutilated, are chamfered with
lamb's tongue stops; one at the left end of the main range, above the upper
storey, is plastered over, with C18 moulded covings. Despite the step in the
facade the main range is continuous. Early C19 geometrical stair in middle
wing, with wreathed mahogany handrail, cast iron newel encircled by stick
balusters, and scrolled tread-ends. Grey marble fireplace in this wing. C18/19
fireplace in left wing with Delft tiles. Clasped purlin roof with arched
collars at half-bay intervals, all original. C18 folding shutters, panelled and
fielded, in front ground-floor windows. RCHM 33.
