August 1974. Listed, Grade II.
Early 17th century house with façade of about 1830.
Façade is 4 bays 3 storeys in red brick, sash windows with foliate consoles and hoods, moulded cornice. Cross wing to east. Though interior much remodelled, front roof has 5 bays of early 17th century upper crucks, and staggered butt purlins. Rear wing with similar roof.
See (S1) for the complete listing details.

South wall of street range is constructed of bricks with diagonal skintlings laid three headers between each stretcher. The gable is rendered; a small rear outshut is later, beyond a vertical join. South face of rear wing, in courtyard, formerly had two storeys of tall sash windows, resembling the façade. On interior, first floor rear wing has very fine fireplace, and in the street range an ornate ceiling both about 1830. However the 'early 17th century upper crucks' mentioned in (S1) are in fact knee braces attached to the principal rafters by iron bolts, three trusses in the street range, two visible in the rear wing (but the whole length was not accessible); the rafters themselves are crude. The roof need not be of early date, the braces are 19th century. So the only visible pre 1830 work is the base of the south gable wall, about 1700.
