2/41 Skippetts House

7.12.73 II

C17, C18 & Circa 1900. Of Tudor origin, the exterior is mainly C18, of early and
late phases. The north front of 2 storeys and attic was originally symmetrical,
of 5 windows, but the eastern bay is now absorbed into a long north-south wind,
projecting forwards in 2 windows. Red tile ½ hipped roof, 2 flat-roofed dormers
with sashes. Walling is now faced in cement, with a parapet (coping and band)
in the older part, 1st floor band. Sashes in reveals, with old glass. Brick porch
of the last period, with oval arched doorway and side windows. The lower east
elevation has irregular fenestration with upper sashes and ground floor French
lights. The south side shows gabled sides enclosing an early C19 infilling with
a low-pitched hipped slate roof. The next elevation has a C1900 extension, with
casements, linked to a tall structure with red brick walls on a flint base assumed
to be a former granary, re-converted (& steddles replaced). On the west side,
a courtyard has a brick-surfaced ring around a cast-iron fitting, being the remains
of a horse-gin for raising water from the well.
