The curved weatherboarding on the far left is striking, although I suppose that it wouldn't have presented a great challenge to carpenters trained in boat building.

You're probably right. There are a number of buildings in Rye with rounded parts, most are tile hung, but I seem to remember at least one other timber clad one - in black I think.

An interesting and not unsuccessful experiment in merging styles.

While the building on the right may have been white all along, I suspect that the wooden boards on the left may have been black, like neighbouring weatherboarded warehouses.
The English Heritage listing does not show a lot of information, but can be found here list.english-heritage.org.uk/resultsingle.aspx?uid=1262491

Thanks for the link to the listing text; as you say, it isn't tremendously informative, but it's good to check what they have to say!
