South elevation 2 storeys, 3 + 5 bays. Oldest part to right: Central renewed

Left part also has 12-pane sashes. All windows with slightly-projecting sills.
Banded end and 2 ridge stacks. On left return pent outbuilding with 2 boarded
doors and 12-pane attic sash; right return shows small attic window. Rear
outshut has 2 flush-panelled doors, one with 3-pane overlight, and several
small-paned sashes; several openings have raised stone surrounds.
Interior: Fielded-panel doors throughout. East drawing room has early C18
panelled wall with 2-panel cupboard doors and fluted pilasters flanking late
C18 Gothick fireplace. West drawing room has stone fireplace with architrave,
swell frieze and mantel; dentil cornice. Old kitchen fireplace at west end
of house has cambered timber lintel. Closed-string dogleg stair in outshut,
probably re-assembled in late C18 or C19, has urn-on-vase balusters, ramped
moulded handrail and square panelled newels. Simple C18 fireplaces in bedrooms.
Extension has collared common-rafter roof with tenoned and pegged collars and
carpenter's numbering; early C18 part has later common-rafter roof with halved

Historical note: The east part of the house may have been built soon after
Robert Christon purchased lands here in 1698; the western extension (which
may incorporate an earlier single-storey range) and outshut were probably
built after the Taylor family purchased the farm in 1759.
