TL 26 SE FRAMLINGHAM CHURCH STREET (WEST SIDE)
25.10.51 No.2A (Amadeus House)
House and shop. C16. 2 storeys and attics; basic half-H form; set sideways-
on to the road on the southern edge of the churchyard. Timber-framed and
rendered; plaintiled roof; modillion cornice. An internal chimney-stack set
between the main range and the eastern cross-wing, with a large plain red
brick shaft. Various early C19 mullion-and-transome type windows with Gothick
hoodmoulds; one gabled dormer. C20 entrance door; surround with pilasters,
entablature, dentil cornice and rectangular fanlight with curved glazing-bars.
The eastern cross-wing is separately used as a shop: mid C19 facade to the
street frontage, which is on a lower level than the remainder of the building.
Red brick, with white brick pilasters and heavy console brackets. Plain
framing exposed inside: ceilings with chamfered main beams and joists set
flat. The cross-wing on the west is in 5 bays: the roof has clasped purlins,
principal rafters and windbraces. A number of rafters are reused, and have
traces of smoke-blackening. The roof over the main range has one row of butt
and one row of clasped purlins, and seems of slightly later date than the
wing. There is no visible indication, however, that the house had an earlier
core. Various blocked original windows, and later extensions at the rear.
