CURDWORTH COLESHILL ROAD
4/60 Nos.45-49 (odd)
House, now divided into 3 dwellings. C15, remodelled internally in the C16 and
externally in the C20. Timber-framed and of cruck construction, outer walls
partly rebuilt in brick and roughcast; plain tile roof; brick internal lateral
stack with lozenge shaped shaft. T-shaped plan: 2-bay hall house with cross-wing
at the south-east end and a single-bay extension at the north-west end. One
storey and attic. 2:1 window front: C20 glazing bar casements. Cross-wing to the
right has a brick band at eaves level and a triangular-headed entrance within a
left hand extension. The hall range has a gabled dormer to the right and a
gablet over the left hand attic window. Interior: the 2-bay hall range has a
central arch-braced cruck truss which supports 2 pairs of trenched purlins with
carved wind braces. Traces of a second truss are visible in the south-east wall
but it is not certain that this is of cruck construction. There may be another
cruck truss in the north-west wall as the wind braces survive here, but this
wall is now plastered over. In the C16 a first floor was inserted into the hall.
It has a spine beam with wide chamfers and chamfered and stopped joists. At the
same time a chimney stack was built in the north-west corner of the hall. The
overmantle of the fireplace is decorated with a plaster oak tree motif, probably
C17. Also visible at ground level is the foot of one of the cruck blades. The
foot of the corresponding cruck has been boxed in.
