INTERIOR: original house of 3 bays with some reused timber
including one tie-beam sooted and with arched brace pegs. Some
lamb's tongue chamfer stops on bridging joists. Common joists
of modest scantling with diminished haunched tenons and
pendant soffits. Wall and partition framing has curved primary
braces. Faced halved and bladed scarfs in wall top plates.
These features suggest a mid-C17 date for the timber-framing.
The only heating provided in the old house is by the C19 stack
on the W gable end. Old joist trimming on the S side on the
central bay and cracking of the wall plaster below suggests
that originally the house was provided with a lateral stack on
the S side of the central principal room and was not of lobby
entrance form that is usually found in the area.
Little Oakhurst, Haylands (qv) and Nunns (qv) form a group.
