(north-west side)

9/48 Nos. 57 and 59
2.5.53 (formerly listed as
Premises adjoining
and on south west of


House. Circa 1600, altered in C19 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed
with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays facing SE with axial stack in second bay
from right end, forming a lobby-entrance. 3-bay wing to rear of right end, and
catslide extension to rear of left end. 2 storeys. Ground floor, one late C19
sash of 6 lights and 2 early C19 splayed bays of sashes of 8-12-8 lights below
full-length jetty with moulded fascia. First floor, one early C19 sash of 12
lights, and 2 early C19 tripartite sashes of 4-12-4 lights, with crown glass.
At left end, early C19 6-panel door, bottom panels flush and the others fielded,
in simple moulded architrave, with 2 stone steps. In lobby-entrance, similar
door but with the 2 top panels glazed, with similar architrave. Original
moulded bargeboards on left gable. Jowled and stepped posts. Straight bracing
trenched inside studding. The studding of the lower storey of the left end has
been entirely renewed with primary straight bracing, indicating that this room
has at some time been extended to the left, and later reduced again. At rear
left some original studding has been removed. In the bay to left of the stack,
ovolo-moulded axial beam with converging stops. In front of it are moulded
joists of horizontal section, re-set and re-jointed; to rear of it are thinner
plain joists. The internal studding to left of this has been removed, and a
post introduced. 2 wide wood-burning hearths, both mantel beams ovolo-moulded
with converging stops; the right hearth has been faced with C20 brick. Above
the first floor, chamfered axial beams with lamb's tongue and notch stops. On
the first-floor wall, above a blocked hearth, is a wall painting approximately
one metre square of a vase with flowers, including the date 1682. Another
first-floor partition wall is faced with C17/18 plank and muntin panelling of
pine. The right upper hearth has a brick segmental arch, repaired. In the
right end wall, at both storeys, are blocked windows of early glazed type,
indicating that no. 61 (item 9/49, q.v.) was built later than this house. The
rear wing has similar jowled posts, chamfered axial beams with lamb's tongue
stops, and some original wattle and daub infill in the right wall; it is
probably of the same date as the main range, or added soon afterwards. RCHM
