House. Mid-C19 with some mid-C20 alterations. Brick with blue brick and
ashlar dressings, lias limestone quoins and plain tiled roofs. Large Jacobethan-
style house of assymetrical composition, with complex gabled roofline, gables
having scalloped bargeboards and all slightly projecting on corbels carved
with human heads; massive chimney stacks with grouped ornately decorated shafts.
Two storeys. Windows are mainly multi-light mullioned and transomed type.
South front elevation: four gabled bays; left bay has external chimney with
moulded stone cornice at eaves level from which rises three columnar shafts
on octagonal bases, the outer ones of herringbone design and the central one
of a "woven" design; the second bay has a gabled two-storey porch wing; the
ground floor has a Tudor moulded stone archway with glazed pointed archways
in each side wall, all having hood moulds with returns; within is a quadri-
partite valuted ceiling and a Tudor-arched entrance door with side lights;
the upper storey projects a little on a corbel table and has a stone oriel
window with a quatrefoil-traceried frieze at its base, rectilinear tracery
with pointed-arched lights and an embattled parapet above a moulded stone
cornice; the side walls have lancets with hood moulds. The third bay has
a 4-light window on each storey both having hood moulds with returns, and
in the gable apex is a small pointed-arched niche, with a sill string, hood
mould with grotesque heads carved on the label stops and containing a carved
woman's head. The fourth bay has two narrow rectangular ground-floor windows
with pointed-arched latticed casements and on the storey above is a pointed-
arched window with moulded architrave and cross-casement; a half-hipped gabled
chimney projection intersects at right angles to the left side of the roof
pitch which has two short columnar shafts decorated with an interlaced hexagonal
design and set on octagonal bases. The west elevation of the house has a large
external chimney with three star-shaped shafts and to the right of this a two-
storey canted bay window. Interior: drawing room to rear left has an elaborately
carved fireplace decorated with sea monsters and flanked by two herms in the
form of wounded sailors. This large house retains some good quality and unusual
features, particularly in its south front elevation.
