METTINGHAM LOW ROAD
TM 39 SE
1/20 The Valley House
-
- II
Former farmhouse. C16-early C17. Timber framed core, mainly cased in early
C20 white brick. Pantiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. 2-cell form. Early
C20 windows and door; attached to the front is the remains of a lean-to
conservatory. Central axial stack. At the time of survey (June 1985) the
house was under renovation and much of the frame was exposed internally, some
parts with closely-spaced studs. There are 3 bays; the stack occupies part of
the centre bay and seems to be a later insertion or reconstruction. The
northern end has an original first floor window with heavy cavetto mullions
and the remains of another similar window. The first floor structure at this
end has been renewed. The southern room comprises a single bay: the ovolo-
moulded floorbeam and a similarly-moulded but mutilated first floor window
imply a later date than the remainder of the house. In the north side of the
stack is a small C17 cupboard with carved door, perhaps brought from
elsewhere. The extensive additions of 1905-12 are not of special interest.
