Farmhouse now house. Late C17, extended 3 bays to left c.1770, Coursed limestone
rubble, brick window and door dressings; old tile roof, stone slates to right
wing; brick stacks. L-shaped plan. 2 storeys to left, 2 storeys and attic to
right wing; 4-window range. Gauged brick segmental arches and brick jambs to
6-panelled door and ground floor sashes, of which two are mid C19; moulded
timber lintels over mid C18 first floor sashes. Brick plinth course; projecting
storey band. 2 gabled dormers with C18 two-light casements. Gable wall of right
wing has similar detailing to scattered fenestration of 3 mid C18 sashes and one
attic window. Gabled roof; two large lateral stacks to right; left wing has one
gable end stack and one ridge stack, formerly at gable end of C17 house.
Chamfered timber lintels over 2 late C17 three-light wood mullioned and
transomed windows to right wall and to rear; also at the rear are 2 late C19
two-light casements, a sash, one inserted door of c.1980 and the blocked doorway
to the late C17 wing. Interior: Panelled shutters, 2- and 6-panelled doors, some
with moulded architraves. Early C18 bolection moulded fireplaces to left room
(probably reset), wood bressumer and chamfered and stopped beam to centre room,
cased beams to right wing. On first floor is a plank and stud partition dividing
the passage at the front of the house leading to the early C19 staircase in the
right wing. Dog-leg with landing staircase with closed string, stick balusters
and turned newel. Late C17 three- and two-bay roof to right has collar trusses
with cambered collars and butt purlins; mid C18 three-bay collar truss roof with
butt purlins to left. Subsidiary features: C18 wall attached is left of English
garden wall bond brick and has a semi-circular arch over decorative wrought-iron
gate; similar wall attached to right in Flemish bond linked by a low brick wall,
rebuilt in late C19, with 6 piers and a central iron gate. Manor Farmhouse is a
good example of a late C17 yeoman house extended in c.1770; it is evident that
the original front of the late C17 house was to the rear.
