Farmhouse, early and late C17. Originally the manor house of St
Omars manor. Two storeys and attics. Early C17 clunch
cross-wing to north with quoins and parapet to west rebuilt in
small local, late C17 bricks; flint foundations and brick band
to stepped clunch plinth; some original ovolo mullioned
casement windows, and C19 or modern replacements. Range to
south late C17, small local bricks coursed in English bond;
brick plinth, sawtooth eaves cornice and parapet gable to
south; roof raised in C19 on front elevation; windows sealed
or with later, C19 replacements, one original casement with
lattice lights in south gable. Two fine, square stacks with
sawtooth cornice and one, or two blind round-headed arches on
each face. Stack to right hand behind ridge has lower courses
of clunch. Front elevation has three, three-light first floor
casement windows, and three ground floor casement windows.
Cross wing has two stone mullioned three-light casement
windows. Main entrance to left of centre has brick pilasters
supporting a projecting hood of three recessed brick courses
with a lead cover. It is possible that the cross-wing was the
parlour wing to an earlier hall replaced late in C17 by the
south range. Interior has large sealed cooking hearth and
exposed floor frame.
