House. C15, altered C16 and C17. Timber framed and exposed close studding and small
panel frame with plaster infill, left return weather boarded. Plain tiled roof.
Wealden hall house plan in origin. Two storeys and attic on plinth with jetty on
brackets to left end bay and jettied end post and beam to end right, the storeyed

remains in west wall. Hall ceiled over C16, with fine moulded beams and moulded
chimney bresummer to moulded red brick and sandstone fireplace. Plank and muntin
partition with wave and fillet moulded dais beam survives from C15 at west end of
hall, indicating that the lost west end of the house was the original parlour end,
the present external frame of the west wall C17 in character and unrelated to the
internal partition. Internal plaster of hall walls with simple pargetted pattern. The
outshot, probably C17/C18, has a much lower floor level than the main range, with
exposed mullioned window in main rear wall, and framed gallery projecting into
outshot, made up at indeterminate date of old timbers. Cellar below end right bay.
