TL 76 SW DALHAM DUNSTALL GREEN
House. Formerly farmhouse; mid or late C16. 3-cell cross-
passage entrance plan, 2 storeys. Timber-framed and rendered.
Cedar-shingled roof, formerly thatched; C17 gable and axial
chimneys of red brick. Early C20 small-pane casements and glazed
2-panelled entrance door. Good exposed timber framing internally
- close studding and 1st floor members of high quality. A house
with the normal twin service rooms off the cross-passage (now
altered), but combined with twin rooms leading from separate
doorways at the opposite end of the hall, each doorway having had
a short plank-and-muntin draught-screen. On the hall partition
wall a black-letter inscription on 3 plaster infill panels
between studding, incorporating the date 1639; it is probably
only a small part of the original. The hall chimney inserted
C17, backing onto the cross-passage, and another added to the
gable, with the twin rooms converted to one parlour. The roof
rebuilt after a fire c.1960. The 2-storey rear C20 extension is
not of special interest.
