later. Timber framed, plaster and roughcast rendered on a brick
plinth. Plain tiled roofs, gabled, except for hipped roof at
junction of front and service or kitchen range. C17 side stack
with rebuilt upper courses at rear of one room to former late
C15 open-hall, and a red brick ridge stack, early C17, with four

courtyard. Former open-hall, at right of range to road, late

The present entry is to the former open-hall. In the early C17
part of the original house was rebuilt at the left hand and
extended at the rear, forming an L-plan. Timber framed,
rendered with plain tiled roof and original ridge stack. Two
storeys with part at rear also with an attic. One late C18 or
early C19 flush frame hung sash with open boxing of sixteen
panes and C19 canted bay on brick plinth at ground floor. The
garden front has c.1870 white brick gabled parch. The other two
ranges round the courtyard are additional service wings of C17.
Timber frame, rendered on brick plinth with steeply pitched
tiled roofs. Interior: Little of the framing is visible.
However the roof over the former open hall is intact. Three
bays and part of a fourth remain. There are cambered tie beams
and the roof, which is of clasped side purlin construction, has
timbers of substantial scantling and is well carpentered.
Paired cranked bracing between principal rafters and purlins
similar to the barn, Hall Farm, Little Shelford (q.v.). There
is a closed truss between second and third bays. The part of
the roof over the entrance hall is generally smoke blackened.
