House. Circa late C16, extended and remodelled in mid to late C19. Stone rubble,
rendered on east front elevation and part slate hung on rear elevation. Ashlar
granite partly visible on right hand (north) elevation. Slate roofs with double
hipped end to front; the left hand range to south and right hand range to north each
with hipped ends to front and rear. Rear wing on north west offset with gable end.
2 projecting side lateral stacks to right in north range, projecting side lateral
stacks to left in south range and axial brick stack in north west wing.
Plan: original plan uncertain. There is evidence of earlier remains in the north
range and north west wing. The north range originally probably of a 2 room plan
heated by side lateral stacks and the north west wing attached to the rear right
also forming the rear wing of the coach house and stables (qv), heated by an axial
stack with a circa late C16 segmental hollow chamfered arch with large ball stops in
the south gable end.
In circa mid to late C19 the house was considerably altered and extended to the south
with a further 1 room range, heated by a projecting side lateral stack. The plan was
altered probably to the existing arrangement with the main entrance on east leading
into a large stair hall. Reception room to left in new addition on south and 2
reception rooms to north heated by side lateral stacks. The rear north west wing
became the back kitchen. Single storey 1 room extension added on right (north).
Exterior: 2 storeys. 2 bay projections on ground floor to right and left. Entrance
with reset C17 granite chamfered basket arch with diagonal stops and hood mould. 4-
pane sash above to left, 12-pane sash above entrance and early C19 16-pane sash to
right. Single storey extension on right hand side.
Interior: largely C19 with high ceilings and remodelled C19 stair. Rear wing on
north west with chamfered segmental granite arch with large ball stops.
First floor not inspected.
