Full description

House built around 1600. Timber-frame and brick. Thatched roof part hipped. Three cell lobby entrance 20th century openings; brick plinth right of porch. Eyebrow dormers. Off centre stack with base of 16th/17th century brick, lower roof ridge to right. First floor window over two plank doors once used as hayloft.

Central room has four light diamond mullioned window; floor possibly inserted, beam being held with heavy coupled rafters; cambered tiebeam with stud partition; arch braces to tiebeams.
Roof south of chimney stack perhaps 18th century.
Information from (S1).
But if this is a hall house a date of around 1600 seems late, and would ground floor windows be diamond mullions at this period?
