House. Circa 1830-40. Plastered stone rubble or brick and parts may be cob;
probably brick stacks with plastered brick chimney shafts and some Victorian chimney
pots; slate roof.
The house faces south with a double depth plan. The front comprises 2 main rooms
with lobby between. The main rooms are heated by projecting end stacks. The main
door is on the right (eastern) side between the front and rear rooms. A corridor
leads from the doorway to a staircase between the outer rear rooms. The left rear
room also has a projecting end stack and the wall between the projecting stacks here
is thrown out flush with the fronts of the 2 stacks. A third rear service room with
rear end stack adjoins the rear of the right rear room. In the angle between the
main block and the service room is a full height C20 closet extension on the back of
the stairs. 2 storeys.
Main south front has symmetrical 3-window front in which only the central ground
floor French windows are not original. It is flanked by 20-pane (8/12) sashes and
with 12-pane sashes to the first floor. The plaster front is lightly scored
emulating ashlar and it also shows the roofline of a missing verandah with tented
roof. The deep eaves of the main roof are carried on pairs of shaped brackets. The
roof is hipped each end returning to a double gable to rear. The door on the right
(eastern) end wall is probably late C19, the lower part panelled, the upper part
glazed with margin panes. The ground in front is a floor of patterned tiles from a
demolished conservatory. Above left (towards the front) is a 12-pane sash and there
is another between the stacks on the opposite end wall. There are casements
elsewhere, most with glazing bars. The rear double gable has late C19 shaped
bargeboards. The service room has a lower roof.
Interior includes a good deal of original detail.
