alterations. Timber framed and brick with pargetted and colourwashed
render and a thatched roof. Two storeys. Entrance front: projecting C19
bay at right with colourwashed pargetting but no windows. The walling here
rises higher than the rest of the house and has a hipped roof. To left of
this is the C16 or C17 portion which has to the ground floor at centre a
C19 verandah with entrance lobbies at either side and a wooden trellis
between supporting the hipped roof. To the rear wall behind the verandah
is an early-C19 three-light casement window. To the first floor above this
is a further similar window. To left at ground floor level is a 3-light
C19 casement and there is a similar window to the jettied first floor which
has applied timber planking simulating close studding. Right hand flank:
(the early C19 addition) two pairs of French windows above which are panels
of imitation timber framing below the two first floor windows, each of 2
lights with louvred shutters. Left hand flank: projecting ground floor
extension at right with a hipped slate roof and to the first floor above
this a 3-light casement with ogee-heads to the lights. Single-light
similar window at right. To left of this is a C19 two-storey addition
which has a sash window of 4 x 4 panes to the right. Rear: projecting C19
wing at right with 2 ground floor windows and to its left hand flank a 1/2-
glazed door at left with cambered head and a window of 4 x 4 sash panes at
right. Two similar windows to the first floor with louvred shutters. To

heads and 2 to the sides. At left of this is a 3-light window with similar
ogee heads. To the first floor are three 2-light casements.
Interior: Chestnut beams and posts to the present kitchen with some planted
C20 timbers. The sitting room has a pine or chestnut beam but the chimney
bressumer is a C15 of C16 beam, perhaps brought from the church rood screen
and re-used here. It has an upper arcade of 4-centered arches with complex
roll and cavetto moulds below. The first floor corridor shows close
studding and a blocked window to one wall. The ceiling heights of the
bedrooms have been raised. Winder staircase of pine.
