House, early C17, mid C17 and early C19, timber framed and plastered with peg
tile roofs. Two storeys and an 'L' shaped complex with a main north facing
block and a large wing at the south-east corner. The main front has a gabled
peg tile roof with a gable end stack at the west end and single storey, hipped
roofed blocks at each end. The first floor has 3 square double hung sashes
with small panes and moulded surrounds over 2 similar windows and an early C19
central door surround with flat hood. The single storey block has one similar
window and one formerly existed in the west block. The west gable is part tile
hung. Out of the east block is a large C17 brick stack with concertina angled
shafts and stepped 'fins' on outer edge. To the rear a further 2 storey, gabled
peg tile roofed block, linked by a later infill to the front block, with an
east flank wall stack. This has original early C17 carved and moulded
bargeboards on north end, is part underbuilt with C19 red brick on east side and
has black weatherboarding on south facing gable. The interior of main block
reveals timber frame of probable mid C17 with hollow chamfered, jowled storey
posts, most posts unjowled and double side purlin roof. Superficial
modernisation of early C19. The rear block is of 3 bays with an interesting
butt purlin roof with low flat wind braces and high mounted tenoned collar at
each primary truss. This box framed structure was former kitchen/brewhouse and
has wide timber mantle beamed fireplace with copper and bread oven. Within roof
space of link block is a mid C17 window, now enveloped in later building but
with all original fittings and diamond leaded lights. Some fragments of old
pargetting on exterior and remains of figure of eight moat.
