House, now office. Late C13/C14 remains incorporated into C18 building, restored
and extended in C20. Red brick front with incised render on ground floor. Stone-
coped parapet obscuring plain tiled roof. Two storeys and attic with end stack to
left. One 6-pane sash window in attic storey under cambered head, plat band across
first floor below. One 16-pane glazing-bar sash window to first floor in open sash
box, bowed window on ground floor to left. Door of 6-fielded panels in thin reeded,
strip surround with transom - light and hood over.
Interior:- braced posts to chamfered spine beam on first floor, wall plates also
exposed. The hard chalk wall and doorway discovered in the restoration of the
house appear to be the inner face of an arch with a rebate for the door and are
important evidence of a substantial early house on the site; only the Church of
St. Mary and the Castle being older standing structures in Guildford.
First floor room has unusually fine and complete black and white wall
painting of late C16 date, seven feet high by twelve feet wide,
depicting a gentleman in a meadow in front of a town wall, with
strapwork panels to the side. Inscription in two decorative panels
"Slak not thy tyme nor doe not forgett thy synfull lyfe for
to amend" and "0 mortall men and wormes meate remember
death shall be thy eynde."
Good early C19 circular staircase. Ground floor has front room with
four centred stone fireplace.
