House. Circa 1600 with earlier remains and early C18 alterations. Timber-
framing with tile roof. Two storeys with attic, four bays. Framed in irregular

mullions and transom under a timber pediment with shield of arms. Attic dormers

ible C18 date. Door, to right of first bay, is battened and studded and is set
within a renewed frame. Roof hipped at left. Chimney at left with diagonal
shafts. Interior: stair turret at rear contains dog-leg stair of c1600 in four
