House. Late C17 - early C18, possibly with earlier origins, and later
alterations. Rubble with ashlar and brick dressings, pantile and Welsh
slate roofs. L-shaped plan. 2 storeys. South range: 3 first-floor
windows. Boulder plinth. Quoins. Window openings have brick sides, sashes
with glazing bars except for casement in central first-floor window; no
opening on ground floor below it. Upper courses of rubble seem to have been
added. Pantile roof. Moulded coping. Corniced ashlar stack to left end,
ashlar stack to right end. Rear: first-floor casement window in flush
ashlar surround. Right return: main range, on left, has an 8-pane sash
window to left of board door in ashlar chamfered triangular-headed surround
and no first-floor openings. Rear wing slightly set back, and with single-
storey lean-to in angle: 2 first-floor windows; quoins to right; above the
lean-to, first-floor 8-pane sash window; to right, on each floor a sash
window with glazing bars, of 8 panes on first floor, in bolection section
ashlar architraves; stone slate roof; shaped kneeler to right, ashlar.
coping; corniced ashlar stack over large chimney to right. Rear of wing:
small light vent and single-light window in chamfered surround, both on
first floor. Gable end of wing: blocked window in gable. The house is
known locally as Priest House, because of a tradition that it is the oldest
house in the area and formerly contained priest holes: certainly the house
appears to be one of the earliest in the area. The evolution may be of a
late C17 south range, with an early C18 rear range, the south range
heightened in the mid or late C18.
