with a moulded architrave. The older structure is visible in the rear and
north side elevations; close-set vertical studding, 2 rows from sill to wall-
plate with long straight braces in lower corners; gable ends have carved barge-
boards and pendants; north gable end has swept upper corner braces and exposed queen

and square, raking balusters joined by small semi-circular raking arches.
South wing drawing room has Adam-style stuccoed ceiling, and carved doorcases,
cornice, dado rail and chimney piece. South wing hallway also retains late
C18 staircase with turned balusters.
A late C19 brick 2 storey wing adjoins the house to the north concealing
