Farmhouse. C16/C17, remodelled and extended early C19. Rendered walls, partly
over timber framing, and some brick; old plain-tile roof with brick stacks.
L-plan, extended. 2 storeys plus attics. Symmetrical 3-window early-C19 rendered
front has central 6-panel door, with ornamental overlight, and 16-pane sashes. A
delicate wrought-iron verandah runs across the front. The steep-pitched hipped
roof returns to right, and the end wall has leaded casements and a 5-canted bay
window with wooden pilaster mullions and crenellation. An entrance canopy,
further to the rear has similar decoration. Earlier range, parallel to front
range, has a half-hipped gable to left and a clustered ridge stack. Interior not
inspected but noted as containing remains of an L-shaped timber-framed house,
possibly dating from a rebuilding recorded in 1552. Reputed to be on site of
Bishop's Palace, destroyed at Reformation.
