outbuilding adjoining
to west
- II

House and outbuilding. Early C18 and C17, with possible earlier remains.
Timber-framing and brick with tile roofs. Main part of house faced with
brick in English garden wall bond under a hipped roof. Two storeys, three
bays. Windows are iron casements with flat heads under segmental outer
arches. Door in left-hand bay under flat timber hood: Chimneys to right
of door and at right. Adjoining to the left is a lower outbuilding of exposed
timber-framing in three rows of square panels. In the front wall there is a
doorway with a window to its right. Exposed in the left-hand gable wall is
a cruck truss, truncated at collar level. The rear wall of the main block
has exposed framing in irregular square panels. A rear wing appears to be of
more than one build. Its rear part is close-studded and has a 6-light timber
mullioned window with transom on the first floor of its gable wall. Interior:
the two internal trusses of the outbuilding are of interrupted tie-beam type
and probably late C17. Either the cruck in the gable is a late survival, or
the building has been reconstructed.
