House. Mid C19 face to C16 and C17 core. One storey and attic to main
range, 2 storeys and attic to cross-wing. Timber-framed; faced in white
brick; roofs part pantiles, part plaintiles. 2 gabled dormers. Fluted barge-
boards to gables and dormers. Sash windows with a single vertical bar to
whole ground storey, and to upper storey of gable; moulded wedge lintels. A
4-panelled entrance door with sunk panels. Much framing exposed inside: plain
ceiling joists set flat. The main range is in 2 sections, the bay on the
extreme left being a slightly later extension in similar style. The roof,
exposed on the upper storey, has clasped side purlins and cranked windbraces.
The frame has been cut back on the south, and the missing part replaced by the
present early C17 3-bay cross-wing, which has plain framing, exposed on the
upper storey. On the upper side wall, facing southwards down the street,
evidence of an original mullion-and-transome window with short side-lights:
the ovolo-moulded transome is reused in an attic partition. Roof in 3 bays,
corresponding to wall-bays: one row of butt purlins and one of clasped
purlins; windbraces; assembly-marks on the main timbers. The chimney-stack,
between the 2 ranges, has one Adam-style fireplace.
