1/142 Nos 74, 76 (The Maltster's House and
78 (Granary Cottage)
3 terraced houses, originally one house. C18 facade to early C15 hall house (No 76) with probably C16 wings (Nos 74 & 78); mostly C18 rear extensions. Flemish bonded red brick (Nos 76 & 78 painted). Old tiled roof, behind stone-coped parapet, with tall brick stack and 2 gabled dormers. 2 storeys and attics. No 74, 1 window; No 76, 3 windows; No 78, 2 windows. No 78 has shutters and architrave to door; other doors altered, No 76 in former vehicle entrance. Gauged brick flat arches to flush framed sashes except No 74 with modern leaded casements and
wrought iron shutters; No 76 has timber shutters. Interior of No 76 retains 2 bays (now subdivided) of a high quality hall house with arched braced trusses and tiers of cusped windbraces. Chamfered beams with stepped stops. Entrance door to right probably replaced the original hall entrance with screens passage; present partition wall may conceal former screen. 1st floor has exposed wall post with fine but damaged pilaster and capital; other examples extant. Nos 74 & 76
probably replace earlier buildings but predate the chambering over the hall. Both retain considerable elements of timber frames and roofs.
This house is an important and rare survival in Henley, possibly having been of manorial status. During the C18 the house was used in connection with malting and became part of Brakespear's Brewery in the late C18.
