3/26 Allens House
House. Mid C16 with extension of early C17, and alterations of C19 and early
C20. 2 storeys. Hall range, with parlour cross-wing extension to right.
Timber-framed and plastered; on the side wall of the parlour wing is a C17
pargetted cartouche, containing a damaged design in high relief, perhaps an
achievement. Smaller motifs are reset in later external plastering. Front
wall of main range rebuilt C19 up to 1st floor in flint with painted brick
quoins. Plaintiled roofs, the cross-wing hipped. Internal and rear chimneys
of red brick, the C17 parlour wing stack has a pair of square diagonally-set
flues on a plinth with moulded cornice. Mainly C19 and early C20 casements.
In the cross-wing are exposed C17 ovolo-moulded mullioned windows of 3-lights,
which originally flanked larger windows now blocked. Boarded and battened oak
entrance doors, early C20 or C17 restored. The main range has plain
substantial framing of C16 and was originally a 3-cell house. In the cross-
wing is an original newel stair with turned balusters. The parlour and
chamber above both have moulded plaster ceilings, with motifs matching thos on
external walls. A small C17 lean-to wing at rear is probably a garderobe
