House. Circa 1600 incorporating N wing of late medieval house of
c1500 and rebuilding the hall range with 2-storeys throughout.
Gothicised in early C19, Edwardian bay windows. Timberframed and
stuccoed, with stucco cut back to expose frame on front. Steep
slate roof. 2-storeys and attics, 3-windows long. 2-storeys
C19, stuccoed, gabled porch with sash windows on each face on
upper floor and arch headed doorway with dripmould. 6-panel door
with fanlight. 5-light small-paned canted 2-storey bay windows
each side of porch with moulded cornice to flat roof. 3 small
gabled dormers in roof slope with cusped bargeboards and finials
similar to porch. Large central chimney to right of right-hand
bay. Old N bay has a C19 3-light flush casement window with
pointed head and moulded label, on each floor. Single storey
slate roofed stucco extension at S end with moulded flat doorhood
on shaped brackets. The original house presumably had an open
hall with a 2-storeys bay at the N end. This was probably a
parlour, since the c1600 2-storeys house replacng the open hall
incorporated it, provided a chimney shared with the new hall and
probably had a cross-passage in line with the later porch, and an
unheated service bay at the S where a single-storey kitchen was
added on later and has been rebuilt. The house was given its
churchwarden's Gothic appearance in the early C19 (RCHM
