Abstract:
The house is a 5 bay long-walled jettied house of a common type that became very popular in the middle of the C16th. It was built as a prestige building on a commanding site at the junction of the major roads at the time and would have been ideally placed as an inn. Papers belonging to the present owner show that the house was known as 'Reeves House' as early as 1694 when it belonged to Henry Bateman. The building has a solid frame of axe finished oak close studding, designed for external display but with internally trenched curving walls braces at the storey posts. The windows were originally mullioned on the first floor and oriel on the ground floor. Circa 1600-1640 a second larger firestack was paired up with the original. It is evident however, that the house underwent a major renovation near the end of the C18th when all the windows were replaced with unhorned sash windows and the interiors lath and plastered throughout. Bedroom 2 retains good quality oak or softwood panels (currently painted over) and an Adams style fireplace. The rear of the house was enlarged to incorporate service rooms and stair towers. By this time the original staircase had already been removed and a smaller one put in.
