House. 1884. By George Sherrin. For Sir Sebastian Petre. Minor
alterations in 1906. Red brick in English bond with limestone
dressings, some exposed false framing, and some tile-hanging,
roofed with machine-made red clay tiles. Complex plan facing
approximately W, with 2 internal and 3 external stacks.
2 storeys with attics and cellars. All windows are casements,
many with rectangular leading; all on the ground floor, and
some on the first floor, have chamfered stone surrounds and

first-floor windows are oriels supported on profiled brackets
