TQ 7468 SW
9/70 Nos 100 and 102,
including stretch
of walling to rear
of No 102
Formerly a pair of houses, now two shops. Possibly late C17 with
substantial alterations and extensions. Timber-framed with brick
infill; Kent tile roofs. Double-depth plan with stacks in the
valley between the roofs that run parallel to the street; lateral
stairs and 2 jettied gables to attic at rear. It is possible
that each house had a detached kitchen, that to No 100 largely
rebuilts in brick in the C19 and connected to the house by a
narrow storeyed wing, that to No 102 marked by a short stretch
of Cl7 brick walling that returns on the line of the rebuilt
block to No 100. 3 storeys. Front: entirely re-faced in early
C20 with mock timber framing and cement render. 4-window range;
2 light casements to 2nd floor, small canted oriels to 1st.
Circa 1900 shop front to No 100, the fascia with fluted consoles;
replica shopfront to No 102. Rear: attic gables, jettied and
weatherboarded, each with one 3-light casement (renewed); shallow
canted oriel to 1st floor of each house with 4:16:4 sashes.
Attached by a storeyed wing to No 100, a square-plan brick
building, possibly incorporating some framing, perhaps a detached
kitchen (see above) but now appearing entirely C19; the fragment
of C17 brickwork to the rear of No 102 (possibly the remains of
a detached kitchen) is included in this listing. Interior:
chamfered ceiling beams with scross stops to ground and 1st floor
of both houses; lateral dog-leg stair to each, in situ, with
turned newels (stick balusters to No 100). wall panelling to 1st
floor of No 100 looks late.
