House, rebuilt probably in 1880s, probably by Paley and Austin. Sandstone
rubble with roofs mainly of slate.; 2 storeys. Main (south-east) front has
a projecting wing at the left and a gabled projection at the right.

oversail. The windows are mullioned, some chamfered, some rebated and
chamfered. Their spacing is not completely regular, a result of the
conversion of an earlier house. To the left of the porch are windows of 2

chamfered doorway has a carved shield of arms over the lintel: both are
enclosed by a hood. The gables have copings with finials. Chimneys on
right-hand gable and on gable of left-hand wing have projecting stacks.
Further chimneys to right of porch and between porch and left-hand wing.
Re-set on the west side of the house and used as a window is a moulded
door architrave with lintel inscribed: '16 ONI 78'. Set into the west wall
of a wing at the rear of the house is a stone inscribed: '1886 NNA'.
Inside, there is a fireplace with a wooden surround in a C17th style,
dated 'l886'. A room in the wing projecting at the west side of the front
