G.V. II*

House. C15, C16, with C17 and C19, C20 alterations. Coursed
squared limestone rubble, ashlar quoins and dressings,
Collyweston slate roof having 2 gable and 2 moulded stone ridge
stacks. 2 storey with attics, irregular 5 bay front, third and
fifth bays are separately gabled and the fifth bay is also
advanced. Off-centre C20 half glazed door in pointed surround
with to left, a single fixed light and beyond 3 plain casements.
To the right 3 light mullioned and transomed window with cornice,
beyond is a blocked doorway now containing a C20 light, and
beyond again a 6 light mullioned bay window. To first floor to
the left are 2 C20 3 light windows and to the right a gabled
mullioned and transomed window, a further C20 3 light window with
beyond a 6 light mulliioned bay window. The right hand gable has
blocks for vanished finials. All the non-mullioned windows have
timber lintels. Inside the soot blackened arch braced trapped
purlin roof of the early hall is retained intact. Other evidence
of this early phase is provided by 2 elliptical arches at the
service end of the hall and a short length of vertically studded
framed partition. When a massive stone stack was inserted into
the hall in the C16, a richly moulded oak floor was built over
the hall. The beam over the hearth is ogee moulded and the
limestone jambs have half pyramid stops. The parlour was
reconstructed in the C17 when the large square front bay with
chamfer mullioned lights was added. The chamber over the parlour
has a C17 moulded stone chimney piece.
