802-1/5/9 (East side)
11/06/73 No.162
(Formerly Listed as:
HIGH STREET, Marske By The Sea
(East side)


House, now museum. Late C17, restored C20. Painted rendered
stone with ashlar dressings; roof of pantiles with brick
chimney. End passage plan.
EXTERIOR: single storey and attic, 2-window range. Step up to
renewed boarded door at left in shallow recess. To right of
passage door a small fire window high in wall; label mould
over this and over 2 casement windows with 3 renewed lights
which have lattice leading. Dormer rises from eaves and has
3-light mullioned casement under high gable with side corbels
to coping. Roof has tall renewed chimney to right of door.
INTERIOR: not inspected but noted to have fire beam which can
be seen approx 1m in front of left cross wall with joists
continuing across it. A survey of 1972 with drawings of 1977
shows the interior to have 2 units and suggests that there was
once a third to the north of the cross passage. It shows a
stair at the rear wall with access from the passage and from
the principal room; two first-floor rooms; roof with
principals morticed and tenoned into the tie beam, with a
purlin carried on the projecting ends of a collar; tied by
spurs to the walls; plated collar yoke carries diagonally-set
square ridge piece. The survey suggests this is a regional
transitional stage between the cruck and the tie beam truss.
