Manor house. Datestone WA/1677, extended C19 and mid C20. Regular coursed
limestone with ashlar facade and C20 plain tile roof. Originally shallow H-shape
plan. 2 storeys with attic. Main front is a 5-window range. Gabled end bays
break forward slightly. Central 6-panel, part-glazed, door has moulded and eared
architrave with a central panel below a moulded cornice. Oval, first floor,
window, above door, has moulded surround. Other ground and first floor windows
are 2-light stone mullion windows, with transoms and cyma-moulded architrave
with fascias. Similar, 2-light, attic windows, in each gable. 2 hipped roof
dormers with casement windows. Chamfered plinth and raised band between floors.
Ashlar gable parapets and kneelers. Ashlar ridge stacks have moulded cornices;
the left stack is rendered. Lozenge shape datestone in left gable, similar blank
panel in right gable. Elevation to right has a 3-light stone mullion window to
first floor, with a C20 doorway below, which has a re-used moulded stone
surround. Elevation to left has casement windows with wood lintels. Rear
elevation has central, gabled, stair turret and Cl9 single-storey extensions
flanking. Interior: C17 staircase, with half landing, has turned balustrade and
panelled newels with ball finials. The entrance hall and drawing room, to right,
have C17 bolection moulded panelling with matching wooden fireplace surrounds.
The dining room and the kitchen, to the left of the entrance hall, both have
remains of open fireplaces. Stop-chamfered spine beams. Room to first floor
right has fireplace with a bolection moulded and eared surround, short pilasters
and bolection moulded panel to the overmantle. Room to first floor left of
centre has a C17 fireplace with moulded stone surround and sunk panels. C17 and
C18 panelled doors. The back staircase to the far left hand corner probably
occupies the position of the original back staircase which only gave access to
the first floor room to the far left and the attics.
