House. Circa 1700 and late C18. Red brick Flemish bond with some patterned
brick. Plain tiled roof and wood modillion eaves cornice carried round west
gable end (as at No 1 Mill Street) and partly obscuring the kneeler of the
c.1700 end parapet. Circa 1700 west end stack of two flues with recessed
panel to each side. Asymmetrical facade reflects the two principal building
periods. Seven window range of recessed hung sashes, C19, at first floor with
moulded plat band. Off centre doorway. Six panelled door with rectangular
fanlight and glazing bars. The west end has the c.1700 dark red brickwork
with clear red rusticated brickwork surrounds to the window and door openings.
The rest of the house is of the lighter red brickwork, probably C19. At the
rear is an original kitchen wing. Timber framed with c.1700 casing of red
brick. The range to the road was enlarged at the rear c.1874. Interior was
remodelled in C19. Open string staircase with stick balusters, turned newels

white marble fireplace flanked by a detached shaft with bosses to the capitals
