Surviving wings of a large late C16 house. Circa 1590. The west and south wings

wing added in the C18 forming U-shaped plan. Coursed stone. Fishscale tile roof
with stone coping to gabled ends. Two storeys. West wing is three window range.
Two and three light ovolo moulded stone mullion windows with dripmoulds. Later
central doorway with C19 stone gabled porch. Late raking buttresses left and
right. Rendered chimney stacks over gable ends. The other elevations also have
ovolo moulded stone mullion windows with dripmoulds. The C18 north wing of stone
rubble, fishscale tiled roof with stone coping to gable ends, two storeys, C18

Interior: Floor taken out of the west wing to form an open hall and the stairs are
probably made up from C18 balusters. Chamfered ceiling beams throughout, many with
half-pyramid stops. Stone chimneypieces. What was probably the hall in the south

roof jointed cruck trusses.
