TM 28 NE
1/15 Waveney House


House. Early C16 and early C17. 2 storeys; now 2-cell lobby-entrance plan.
Timber-framed and rendered with thatched roof. The internal chimney-stack has
a plain square shaft with corbelled head. Enclosed gabled porch with clay
pantiles, fluted bargeboards, and plank door with applied pilaster strips. 2
windows to each floor: old 3-light casements with pintle hinges and a single
horizontal bar to lights. The lights on the ground floor are deeper than
those above. Framing exposed inside: good studding, and 2 similar, ground
floor ceilings with chamfered joists and main beams with curved stepped stops;
to the right of the stack there is no plaster between the joists. Open
fireplaces, one with a plain damaged timber lintel. On the upper floor the
frame is clearly seen as 2 separate sections, linked together to form the
present layout: to the right of the stack, the truss has bolted secondary base
crucks replacing an intrusive tie-beam; to the left, the wallplate has been
raised. 2 original upper windows, one 5-light in the gable, one 4-light in
the rear wall, both with plain chamfer to the mullions.
