TQ 73 NW (west side) )
House. C16, extended C18 to C20. Timber framed and exposed close-studding
with plaster infill, and extended with red brick and tile hanging. Plain tiled
roof. The original range is a 4 bay continuous-jettied house on brick plinth
with jetty on brackets, returned to right and with moulded bressummer. Half-
hipped roof with stack to left and projecting at end right. Four leaded wooden
C20 casements on 1st floor, and 2 on ground floor, with blocked mullioned window
to centre. Plank and muntin studded door to right. Projecting C18 to C20 wing
to left, of 2 storeys and garret, with half-hipped roof, and hipped projection
to right. Irregular fenestration of wooden casements, with boarded door in re-
entrant angle. Return and rear (garden) elevations part painted and rendered.
The house appears to be named after a member of the locally important Twysden
family, rather than their original seat (see Twyssenden, item / , and Sir
J R Twisden and C H D Ward, the Family of Twysden ..... 1939).
