Suffolk Road 15-17

Residential

A striking use of a jettied upper floor projecting over the ground floor. This practice, often seen in medieval timber framed buildings, was used here by George Grimwood and Sons to squeeze two houses into a very narrow site. It allowed access to the front doors and rooms but allowing maximum space in the rooms above. The chimney is made into a feature, rising up through the tile hung gable and decorated with a coat of arms, probably fake. Not 1500 but around 1900 in date.
