(Formerly listed as Overy
Manor House)


Manor house. 1712 on datestone; extended early C19. Red brick with flared
headers and some coursed clunch rubble; old plain-tile roof with brick stacks.
Double-depth lobby-entry plan. 2 storeys plus attics. 5-window front range, with
stepped brick plinth, storey band and moulded wood cornice, has, to right of
centre, a 6-panel door, with architrave frame below canopy ornamented with key
decoration and supported on console brackets; to right is a large canted bay
window, and to left are two 3-light casements under segmental arches. At first
floor are 3 corresponding 3-light casements plus 2 single-light windows. To
right of that over the door is a recessed lozenge painted with "D/WH/1712". The
3 gabled roof dormers have C19 ornamental bargeboards and there are stacks in
line with the entrance and to the left gable. Part of the left gable wall and
the parallel rear range are rubble with brick dressings and have further
casements. All windows have leaded lights. The right end of the rear range forms
a higher hip-roofed extension of c.1830. The wall facing right is in header
bond, with red quoins and dentil eaves course, and contains a wide 2-storey
canted bay window with 16-pane sashes and a dentil cornice. Interior not frae
inspected. A clunch rubble wall, partly with a stepped brick coping, runs from
the right end of the house around the rear of a walled garden, which is also
partly enclosed by the The Old Barn (q.v.).
