House, c:1500. A 3-cell open hall house. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and
plastered. Glazed pantiled roof, formerly thatched; an axial chimney with
rebuilt mid C20 plastered brick shaft. C18 or C19 casements at 1st storey,
one light of each window having leaded glazing. Mid C20 casements at ground
storey. A C20 boarded entrance door with glazed panel. The 2-bay open hall
has an open truss with an arch-braced cambered tiebeam (one brace is missing).
The smoke-blackened roof remains, but the crownpost at the open truss and the
collar purlin are missing. Close-studding with evidence for doorways and
diamond-mullioned windows in conventional positions for date. Unchamfered
floor joists remain above the service cell, which was of 2 bays. Similar
heavy joists, also, above the hall; an insertion of mid C16 together with a
large chimney placed in the cross-entry. This has an open fireplace with a
cambered lintel; the fireplace backing against it is a C20 alteration. A rear
range of plastered clay lump was added in C19. Much mid C20 internal
remodelling and a rear extension.
