(Formerly listed as The Laurels)
Former farmhouse, C16 in 3 phases. 2 storeys. 3-cell plan, with an
additional service cross-wing added c.1600. Timber-framed and plastered: the
early C16 hall range is long-wall jettied towards the front with exposed
joist- ends, and the girth beneath is moulded and embattled. The parlour
block of c.1500 (not integral with hall range) is end-jettied with brackets
and moulded pilaster-shafts. Plaintiled roofs with two C17/C18 axial chimneys
of red brick. Various C19/C20 small-pane casements, and a C19 small-pane sash
in the parlour. C19 gabled porch of painted brick, with pantiled roof and
spike bargeboard finial. Panelled C19 door, the upper panels glazed. Some
high-quality framing exposed internally: in the hall are scotia-moulded beams
and joists, the central posts having a pair of mutilated moulded capitals
beneath which were once a pair of carved figures (perhaps angels), one having
been totally destroyed. The parlour block is of similar quality, with a
massive arch-braced tie-beam in the chamber, the braces rising from pilasters.
A blocked 4-centred arched service-room doorway. The additional service
cross-wing of c.1600 reuses a plain crownpost roof of C14 or early C15 origin.
Clasped-purlin roof over hall range. The house stands just to the south of a
medieval homestead moat.
