style. Coursed, tooled sandstone, the later part more neatly tooled, with flush
quoins; rubble north-east bay. Welsh slate roofs; stone copings, and ridges on
older part; tile ridges on extensions; brick stacks on stone bases. Old house
rectangular plan of 2 parallel ranges; 1835 addition incorporates an earlier
building in another parallel range extended to south with south-east porch. The
1844 addition is a separate parallel east range linked to the porch. 2 storeys
and attics. Entrance front: 3 bays. Central 6-panel Tudor-headed door, upper
panels glazed in chamfered doorway with inscription FAVSYD AD 1680 and Farsyde
arms, possible recut. Flanking 3-light double-chamfered mullioned windows, with
leaded glazing on both floors. One-light window above door. Continuous drip
strings above both floors. Small central gable with double-chamfered slit.
This and end gables have stone copings and small gabled kneelers. Right return
2 gabled bays, the left slightly wider, with 3-and 2-light similar windows;
2-light attic windows. Projecting to right the 1835 gabled bay, dated in sunk
panel with Farsyde arms. Similar but 4-light windows. Right narrow porch bay
holds half-glazed door with flattened Tudor head, 3-light window above and gable
slit. Far right projecting similar 1844 wing. Left return of original house
similar to right return. Central stack on ridge linking the 2 ranges. Heraldic
glass in first-floor left window. To left a bay with axis at right-angles: 3
storeys, the lower 2 storeys possibly once an outbuilding, the top floor of late
C18 appearance; windows similar to 1835 part. Door on left return .
Deeply-recessed narrow linking bay has studded door under Farsyde and another
coats of arms. Far left 1844 range (dated over opening on rear elevation) has
C20 replaced stone-mullioned windows. Rear elevation openings mostly altered.
Interior has tasteful decoration of early C20 including much oak wainscoting,
some old but imported, some reproduction; and reproduction staircase. Lean-to
added on rear is not of special interest.
