House. Probably C17 with extensive later alteration but
retaining re-used medieval windows. Coursed limestone rubble
with some ironstone quoins, C20 interlocking concrete tile
roof, brick ridge and end stacks. 2 storeys, 3- window range.
Front has central C20 door with 2 C20 windows to left and one
to right at ground floor, all with wooden lintels. Front,
however, is of less interest than the rear, which has 4
re-used probably C15 windows: 2 to ground floor flanking a
door in a chamfered opening with a wooden lintel, and with a
chamfered fire window, now blocked, to right; and 2 to first
floor flanking a C19 sash window with wooden lintel. The first
floor windows are of 4, originally cusped lights in a square
surround, with straight-sided blind panels above each light.
Ground floor windows each have a label and were originally of
2 cusped lights in a square surround (the cusping is concealed
in the right-hand windows but still inside in the left-hand
one) but have been subdivided by chamfered mullions to form 4
lights. Stumps of original secondary mullions rising from the
head of each light reveal however that the present ground
floor windows originally each had an upper part of 4 lights
and suggest that each pair of ground and first floor windows
may originally have formed a single whole. It is interesting
to speculate whence the sophisticated panel-traceried windows
thus formed might have originated - Burton Latimer Hall,
perhaps, before the early C17 rebuilding? The internal face of
each window is plain apart from a raised central fillet.
