GV II*

House. C16, remodelled late C17. Timber-framed, plastered, pebbledashed and colourwashed. Old tiled roof with gabled casement dormer, above coved plaster eaves cornice. 2 storeys and attics. 3 light flush casement windows ground and first floors, flush panelled door in architrave surround with weatherboard head at left. Shares its structure with the north (right hand) bay of The Old Stables (qv). The basic structure pre-dates the acquisition of the Bluecoat Yard buildings by Christ's Hospital in 1685, but the remodelling dates from late C17, probably to serve as `nurse cottages' for the pupils of the school, with No.2 and the newly built Nos 3-12 (qv).
