House. Mid C17. Red brick with cement dressings. Plain tile
roof. 2 storeys and attics. 5-window main front has 3 equal
parapet gables with moulded brick coping. Beneath the gables are
2-storey shallow-projecting window bays with stone quoins and
stone-dressed 5-light mullion and transom windows. To the attics
are 3-light windows with thin hood moulds. The intermediate bays
have square-headed doors with moulded brick surrounds and hoods.
2-light windows above these. Cornice bands to 1st and 2nd
floors have single cut-brick cyma recta mouldings. Original
brick finials to gables. Behind the roof are 3 tall chimney
stacks with grouped octagonal shafts, moulded at the bases and
caps. The rear elevation forms an open courtyard with 2
projecting gable ends, likewise with coping and finials. 1st
floor bands. 3-light windows. To centre left is a narrow gabled
stair turret with a 4-centre arch door and right of this isthe
central chimney stack with diaper brick patterning. Square
leaded casements to all elevations. Internally there is an
unusually large central hall with exposed chamfer-stopped beams
and a broad stone fireplace. Original simple oak spiral
staircase in the turret. Smaller late C17 newel staircase in the
opposite angle leading to 1st floor NE room which has a fireplace
with an inscription dated 1692. An exceptionally complete
example of a mid-C17 medium-sized country house. (RCHM
