- II*

Former farmhouse. Mid to late C16. 2 storeys and attics; 3-cell plan, with
internal chimney-stack and cross-entry. Timber-framed and rendered, with
thatched roof. The internal stack has a plain red brick shaft. Plain 2-light
C20 casement windows to upper floor; one old 3-light casement window with
transome, and one replacement C20 window, to ground floor. Plank door beneath
a plain Doric portico. In the south gable wall, a 4-light casement window to
each floor. Good timbering exposed inside: 5 bays. Full height studs in the
long walls; entrance door still in the cross-entry position with a later
paritition forming a corridor. Formerly 2 service rooms, now made into one; 2
original doorways, chamfered and square-headed, one blocked. The 2-bay hall
has a chamfered main beam with curved step stops and jewel and similar joists
without the jewel. The open fireplace has a timber lintel and a damaged band
of ornate pargetting across the whole wall above the fireplace. The parlour
has a similar, but not identical, treatment of the ceiling, which is not
plastered between the joists; plain timber lintel, and a large blocked
original window on the front wall. The main beams in both rooms have sunk
noticeably, and both halves of the ceiling slope towards the centre. In the
room above the parlour, both the ceiling and fireplace have ornate plasterwork
of c.1600, similar, but more lavish, than that in the hall: the main cross-
beams have bands of flowing decoration with bunches of grapes and foliage, the
4 quarters of the ceiling are liberally ornamented with Tudor roses, fleur-de-
lys and other motifs; bands of decoration above the fireplace include dragon
motifs. The designs are blurred by repeated coats of limewash. In the
service end of the house, there are 5-light diamond-mullioned windows,
blocked, but with mullions in situ, on each of the side walls, and evidence
for another in the gable end. The tie-beams have long arched braces, and the
upper ceilings are original. Clasped purlin roof in 7 bays: full principals,
cut away for the insertion of the purlins; windbraces curving one way only in
each bay, so that 2 bays complete an arch; no windbraces to the chimney-bay.
The house stands sideways-on to the road.
