and 1636). Main front remodelled. Rubble with granite quoins and dressings mostly
slate hung. C1800, this is 2 storeys, 6 windows, glazing bar sashes, with modillion
eaves cornice and hipped slate roof. A small closed porch with square domed roof
and Doric columns off centre left: this front is quite shallow and like most of
the rest of building is slate hung. The rest of the building is built of rubble,
with slate roof and irregular chimneys. Half H plan to rear, central part is
taller, 2 storeys with 2 four light mullion and transom windows on ground floor
with drips and 2 later glazing bar sash windows on first floor: central panel with
carved cost of arms and drip. This part is flanked by doorways, the left hand one
with eliptical head and drip with initials "MB" on stops and in spandrels.
Projecting wings altered, the left hand one is to animal shed (first floor is
to dove cot). The right hand is to two and a half storey domestic accommodation,
2 windows each, mullions and sashes.
Interior: main staircase is wide and leads through a Tudor arch doorway into first
floor great hall which now has an open roof (arch-braced collars, ceiling was
formerly segmental and with ornamental plasterwork (now in Plymouth City Museum)).
Ornamental plaster ceiling of ground floor now very damaged. One room retained
possible replice frieze dated 1621. Most of the house's interior incorporates
later remodellings.
