3/37 Willow House


House. C16 and C17. 2 storeys: 3-cell form. Timber-framed and rendered,
with plaintiles to front slope of roof, pantiles to rear. An early C17 stair
wing projecting from the front: the apex of the gable overhangs slightly above
the tie-beam, which has guilloche ornament. An internal chimney-stack with
plain rebuilt shaft. Various C20 small-paned casements. The entry is into a
small single-storey lean-to against the west side of the stair-wing. The
frame is in 4 bays, with the timbers exposed inside. The 2 central bays are
C16, with two-and-a-half inch chamfers and curved stops to main beam, repeated
down the sides of the main posts; closely-set joists with similar finish. The
chimney-stack, with 2 back-to-back hearths, intrudes into one bay, and is a
later insertion. One of the 2 original doorways of a cross-entry abuts on
this stack, with the stair-wing immediately beside it: the surround has
multiple ovolo-mouldings and crested stops at the base of the jambs. The end
bay to the west of the stack replaces an earlier section of the house and is
separately framed. Chamfered main beam, widely-spaced plain joists, and an
ovolo-moulded cross-beam embedded in the brickwork of the stack. The
fireplace has a timber lintel. The eastern bay, now forming one room with the
central bays, is an extension of the later C17, with poorer framing. Remains
of a diamond-mullioned window on the south side of the upper storey. Side
purlin roof. The stair-wing contains an early C19 stair.
