5/20 The Court House


Detached house. Circa 1600 to mid C18. Timber-framed wing to
rear, Flemish bond brick to front range, tiled hipped roof with
brick stacks. L plan. 2 storey, and attic, 5-window symmetrical
front with 1-window extension to right. Central door has
rectangular light over and moulded case with segmental hood. To
left and right are two cast iron casements with segmental-headed
openings. First floor has five cast iron casements. Two hipped
dormers to roof. One-bay extension to right has one cast-iron
casement to ground floor and first floor. Outshut to rear right
has C20 casements. 2-storey, 1-window timber-framed wing to rear
left has square panelling on brick plinth with rendered brick
infill, windows are cast iron casements as on the front.
Interior not accessible at time of survey (July 1984), but R.C.H.M.
recorded chamfered beams with ogee stops to ground floor and a mid-
Cl8 newel staircase with flat balusters. The timber-framed wing
probably represents the remains of a larger range, reduced in
length when mid C18 front range added.
(Unpublished records of R.C.H.M. (England), Salisbury).
