divided with one room to right and a small room to left; the room to right is heated
from an end stack, and the small room to left is heated from a stack at the front
end. This may represent the rear wing of an early house, or part of an early house

remodelled with the addition of a front range; this consists of a central entrance
leading to a large entrance hall, with stair to the rear left of the hall. Room to
right and left, each heated from an end stack. This range also contains an unheated
room to rear right, formerly used as a dairy, with a service stair, and was enlarged
at the rear circa mid - late C19.

panelled and glazed studded door, probably of the early C18, with C20 portico. C19

left side, the end of the main range is blind, with granite quoins to left and right.
The rear wing is slightly stepped forward to left, also with granite quoins. Ground
floor has 2-light casement with brick segmental arch, first floor has 12-pane sash
and single light with timber lintel, both with splayed reveals internally. The gable
end of the wing has a brick stack rising from the slope of the roof, rebuilt. C19 6-
pane sash and 2-panelled C18 door with date 1611 carved on the lintel. The inner
side of the wing has 6-pane sash at ground and first floor, and C20 door to left. At
the right end of the main range is a 4-pane sash at first floor to left, and a small
single opening by the stack at attic level. The rear of the main range is rebuilt to
left with a brick wall; ground floor has door, 2-light window and 4-pane casement.
C20 window at first floor.
Interior: The entrance hall has a winder stair to rear left, with stick balusters.
The front left room at ground floor has complete fielded panelling with jib door to
rear, which formerly gave access to the kitchen to rear. Moulded cornice and
cupboards to right and left of the fireplace. The chimneypiece has been replaced
with a roughly hewn granite fireplace. The front window has a panelled window seat
and panelled shutters. 2-panelled door, with scrollwork in the panelling above. The
room to front right has a fine early C18 3-panelled door. In the rear wing, the
large room has rear fireplace with wooden lintel. The smaller room has fireplace
with roughly hewn granite lintel and cloam oven. The doorway between the two rooms
has a panelled and studded door. The outer doorway to the large room, which leads
into the C19 dairy, has a fine C17 12-panelled door with moulded fillets and studs.
At first floor in the rear wing, there are 2 rooms corresponding to the rooms at
ground floor; the larger room has doorway with moulded and scroll-stopped wooden
frame, 3-panelled door of early C18. The smaller room has a plain 2-panelled door
