appears on C18 estate maps (information from owner) and single-storey outbuildings to
the rear of this wing form a small courtyard to the north of the main block.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2:3 window front (3 windows to the service wing at
the right). The main block has a central panelled front door with a rectangular
fanlight with glazing bars ; 2-leaf window above onto a small balcony on moulded

pane sash in the centre all with sun hoods carried on ornamental timber trellis
brackets. 4-pane sashes to the first floor with louvred sun shutters. The west
elevation has a C19 French window with margin glazing and a similar sun hood on

sash windows with simple iron railings above the sill.
Interior: Not thoroughly inspected but includes original joinery and a stick baluster

found behind the present brackets during renovations (information from owner).
A handsome early C19 house with unusual and attractive external detail. '
