Yellow gault brick with red brick details to quoins, bands and
door and window openings. Steeply pitched tiled roof with
tumbled end parapets on kneelers. Gable end mock stacks with
red brick rustication to the qoins, and two stacks in rear wall,
one between front and kitchen ranges. Dentil eaves cornice.
Main range with stair-turret at rear and kitchen wing, forming
an L-plan. Two storeys and attic. Two dormers. Range of four
flush frame hung sashes of twelve panes each in segmental arches
with open boxing. Three windows at ground floor including two
tripartite hung sashes c.1930, and an original hung sash window
opening. Off-centre doorway with early C19 reeded doorcase and
flat hood. Above the front door is a brick inscribed 1723.
Right hand gable end has red brick diaper work and a blocked
1723 window opening. The kitchen wing has some earlier
brickwork but is mostly C19. Interior: There are opposing
front and rear doorways and an early C19 staircase screen with
similar detail to the doorcase. The open-well staircase is 1723
and of two flights and a landing. Urn shaped balusters with
toads back rail, and larger similar balusters to the newels.
There is no evidence for hearths in the gable ends at either
ground or first floor. There are however hearths in the rear
wall. The right hand ground floor room has an inglenook and an
abutting hearth to the kitchen, restored. The roof is of
staggered butt-purlin construction. The house is probably on
the site of the manor house.
