House. Circa 1850, carefully modernised circa 1983. Stucco walls, mostly brick but
some stone rubble; brick stacks with plastered chimney shafts; slate roof, some
tile to rear.
Main block faces south-west with double depth plan. It is 2 rooms wide. The main
domestic rooms are those 2 on the front the these have end stacks. Main entrance is
to rear of left (north-western) side directly into a large entrance hall and stair
behind the front left room. Small room to rear of right front room and behind that
an integral 2-storey outshot. Behind the entrance hall is the kitchen block
projecting at right angles and projecting a little from the left end. It has a
gable-end stack. Behind the house a small courtyard is enclosed by service
buildings but also includes a tall single storey block, lit from the top and with an
end stack; probably once a billiard room. House is 2 storeys and main block has
attics. Tudor Gothic style.
Symmetrical 3-window front. In the centre at ground floor level is a tall round-
headed niche with flat architrave and hoodmould. It contains a moulded lions head
water spout and lobed half basin. The niche is flanked by flat-roofed bays,
projecting square with panelled corner shafts, moulded cornice and containing
original French windows. The cornice is carried across over the central alcove as a
dripcourse. The first floor windows have Tudor-style hoodmoulds and contain horned
4-pane sashes with unusual horizontal glazing bars. All the windows have shaped
vallances for external blinds. The stucco front is lightly incised as ashlar with
quoins on the corners. Moulded eaves cornice and low parapet with soffit-moulded
coping. The parapet is interrupted by 3 attic dormers; horned round-headed sashes
without glazing bars and architrave with panelled imposts, moulded head and resting
on large blocks on shaped brackets. Roof is hipped each end. The chimney shafts
have soffit-moulded coping.
On the left end, the entrance front, the main block has the main doorway to rear
with another horned sash with hoodmould above and a round-headed dormer above that.
The doorway contains a part-glazed door with margin panes and lies behind a flat-
roofed porch flush with the kitchen behind. It contains a part-glazed panelled door
with fanlight and side lights. Stucco imposts and moulded head with a rusticated
keystone which interrupts the eaves cornice. The moulded coping of the low parapet
is the same used on the kitchen block. The kitchen has a 2-window front; horned
sashes with hoodmoulds and soffit-moulded sills to the ground floor and twin round-
headed lancets to first floor. The right end wall has an irregular 2-window front
with a third to the outshot, all horned sashes but only the latter with hoodmoulds.
Interior is largely original and remarkably well-preserved. The main rooms have
marble chimneypieces and moulded plaster cornices, the latter in a kind of
Jacobethan style. The joinery detail is high quality. It includes a large open
well stair, again vaguely Jacobethan in style. It has an open string with shaped
stair brackets, square newel posts with pyramid caps, mahogany handrail and turned
balusters. It is lit by a skylight. Even many of the brass door handles etc are
original. The front ground floor rooms have ornate brass bell pulls enriched with
openwork patterns and painted porcelain handles. In the service outshot the bells
remain, each with a different tone.
