5/5 Kayden House


House. C16 and C17. Timber-framed and rendered; black glazed pantiles; an
internal chimney-stack with 3 attached square shafts, set diamond-wise on a
rectangular base of Tudor brick. 2 storeys, attic to part. 3 3-light windows
to each storey, all replacements of the 1980's in traditional style. A C20
door on the extreme left in a plain older surround. Various extensions at the
rear. 3-cell plan, but not all of one build. The chimney-stack and the part
to the left of it is an early C17 extension/replacement to an older core:
ovolo-mouldings on main beams to ground and first floor; long jowls to main
posts. To right of stack, a single bay with C16 double roll-mouldings to the
main beams and single roll-moulding to the joists; the main cross-beam stands
forward from the chimney-stack, and is unrelated to it. Beside the main posts
supporting this beam are the remains of another pair of posts with empty
mortices for long braces. The bay at the right end has been much altered on
the ground floor; on the upper floor, wide chamfer to the main beam of the
original upper ceiling, widely-spaced studs, small C17 fireplace with brick
arch on rear wall, face-halved scarf in wallplate. An addition at the rear
has a straight flight of stairs with some shaped Jacobean balusters. Roof to
left of stack inaccessible; to right, all with 2 rows of unstepped butt
purlins, although the central section is likely to replace an earlier roof.
