13.2.67 (formerly listed under Hurst Green)
House, C.1600. Sandstone rubble with stone slate roof. 2 storeys with
attic. Now supported by large buttresses with offsets, 3 to the north
wall and 2 to the south, which cut across the window openings. The
windows have an outer chamfer and inner hollow chamfer, those on the
ground floor having a continuous drip course on the north and south
walls, the others having individual hoods. At the left-hand end of the
north wall is a chimney stack projecting on corbels at 1st floor level.
To its right on the ground floor, between 2 buttresses, is a 6-light
mullioned window. To the right of the second buttress is a door cut
into a 2-light window. To the right is a blocked chamfered doorway with
4-centred head and moulded hood. On the 1st floor there is a 2-light
window on each side of one of 4 lights. The gables have copings, the
west gable being blank, with a chimney cap. The east gable has a
4-light mullioned window on the ground floor, a 10-light mullioned and
transomed window on the 1st floor and a 3-light mullioned attic
window. To the left of the ground floor window is a blocked narrow chamfered
door surround with a 4-centred head. The south wall has a 6-light mullioned
window on each side of a later chamfered door surround, with a 4-light
window further right, beyond a buttress. On the 1st floor are a 6-light,
a 10-light and an 8-light mullioned and transomed window, the latter
being partly blocked by a buttress. At the far left (west) on the
ground floor there is a blocked chamfered doorway which once formed a
lobby entry against a firehood. Inside the firehood bressumer remains,
close to the west wall, its chamfer stopped where a spere once existed.
The present fireplace is C18th, shouldered and moulded with a segmental
head. The owners have photographs taken in the attic by Ralph Cross,
which shows trusses with king posts rising from collars with mortice
holes which could once have held the supports for a curved plaster
