3/114 Glebe House
26.1.67 (Formerly listed as
Nos 4/6 Pipers Hill)


Vicarage, later cottages, now one house. C15 or earlier former open hall
house of unusual 'Inverted Wealden' type. Late C16 porch and S end with
front lateral chimney. Early C17 W-wing and floor and chimney inserted
in old hall. C19 brick casing later than Buckler drawing of 1830s in
HRO. Timber framed, part roughcast, exposed close-studding with
plastered infill panels on upper floor of porch and W wing, red brick
casing in irregular bond, Flemish-bond to ground floor of W wing, steep
old red tile roofs. Plan remarkable in combining a square, formerly
open, hall with smoke-blackened rafters, and a 2-storeys jettied parlour
bay on S (service bay and cross-passage to N destroyed) built at the
same time, with the W wall of the hall built in line with the projecting
upper storey of the S bay rather than in line with its set-back
lower-storey (Cf The Manor House, Aldbury). 1 1/2-storeys short block added
to S end in C16 with fine 2-storeys W porch combined with a front-wall
chimney. Early C17 chimney stack built in hall backing onto
cross-passage when hall floored and new 2-storeys service wing of 4
structural bays added running W from the hall. A large 1½- and
2-storeys, L-shaped house facing W. 4 lattice leaded casement windows.
2-storeys jettied gabled W porch, the lower part in red brick with
hollow-moulded square surround to Tudor arched entrance with label and
stops. On a stone over the doorway on the RH is cut 'Thomas Whitehead
1699' - he was the vicar then. 2-light window over. Battened front door.
2 windows on each floor of S face of W wing. 3-light flush casement
windows with iron opening lights. Added gable chimney. (RCHM
