7/184 Orchard House

-- II

House, early or mid C16. Alterations of c.1800 and mid C20. One storey and
attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof, half-hipped to left,
with one eyebrow casement dormer. Axial C17 chimney of pink/buff brick, and a
C19 chimney of gault and red brick to right. C19/C20 small-paned casements.
Boarded C20 entrance door with gabled porch. To right of main chimney is a
large room whose upper floor was removed in C20: to right is incorporated a
small parlour block with studding and long arch windbraces exposed. One bay
of an open hall is adjacent to it, the dividing partition completely removed.
Both original hall windows are visible, blocked, with transomes and evidence
for diamond mullions. An open truss with cambered arch braced tie-beam has a
binding beam at 1st floor level, with heavy joists on the left only. This
suggests a possible croglofft arrangement: a single-bay open hall with a
sleeping loft above the adjacent bay. The remainder of the house was possibly
added c.1800, with further C20 additions to rear.
