Price of Weston-super-Mare. Rubble, freestone dressings, slate and double roman
tile roofs, raised coped verges. Single storey, irregular fenestration, mainly
square headed chamfered stone mullion casements, one 4 centered arch head with
3 light timber casement with gothic tracery; an embattled round tower between a
gable with fleur-de-lys finial and a pitched roof with deep overhanging eaves;
towards rear this adjoins a taller gabled section with gabled porch both with
ornate bargeboards (a slightly earlier barn reworked); the whole dominated by a
circular corner turret with a very tall conical cap; to the road a chimney gable
with 2 light leaded pointed windows in a flat arch, C20 casements on either side.
An attached low wall is pierced at either end with pointed openings, that to left
has a door, that to right spearhead railings; then 4 rusticated square piers
with weathered pyramidal caps; centre 2 are recessed and the curved wall is low
with diagonal cast iron railings; tall, heavy cast iron gates between central
piers have curved heads and ball finials.
