TM 48 NE
2/33 Kier's Cottage

- II

House, latterly 2 cottages. Circa 1600, considerably restored 1980-84. Part
timber framed, with exposed studding (now somewhat altered) and mid C20 brick
nogging; part red brick. Original crowstepped brick gable end to left with
terracotta pot finials, and some apparently original brickwork at the right
hand (service) end. Pantiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. 3 cell form,
originally with lobby entrance. Mid C20 casement windows, mid C20 door.
Internal stack with 4 flues arranged in sawtooth form, now reduced in height;
at the base of one of the flues is a protuding brick shaped like a horse's
head (cf. Thorpe View, Walberswick). All 4 main rooms have ovolo-moulded main
beams and cornice; the parlour also has similar moulding down the wall posts
and on the fireplace lintol. Exposed joisting throughout. Original newel
stairs (2 flights). It seems likely the house was built in connection with
Mutford Hall, some 400m to the south.
