House, now offices. 1778 with C19 and C20 additions and
alterations, mostly to the rear. Attributed to Joseph Pickford
of Derby and built for gentleman farmer Henry Howitt. Red brick
with ashlar and gauged brick dressings, stone plinth and
bracketed moulded stone cornice with blocking course over.
Hipped graduated slate roof with brick ridge stacks. Three
storeys and three bays with central bay slightly advanced and
pedimented. Main elevation has steps up to central ashlar Roman
Doric pedimented doorcase, flanked by narrow sashes with
tapering pilasters to outer edges and plain entablatures over,
creating a Venetian style doorcase. Raised and fielded panelled
door has semi-circular traceried fanlight above. To east side
of the doorcase in the central bay is an early C20 war memorial
with a brass plaque set in a pedimented stone aedicule. Side
bays have glazing bar sashes under gauged brick flat arches.
Two similar windows above and a central glazing bar set in
raised, moulded, shouldered stone surround. Above again, there
are three smaller glazing bar sashes, those to sides under
gauged brick arches and that to centre in moulded stone
surround. Similar windows to other elevations, except two late
C19 canted bay windows to ground floor of west elevation.
Interior has a fine oak staircase which has an open string with
elaborate cheek-pieces and three different columnar balusters to
each step, one tapering, one twisted, and one fluted, each on a
square knop and a vase. It also has a wide moulded, ramped
handrail. The staircase leads up to a large open first floor
landing which has a balustrade of similar balusters. There is
also a back staircase which goes up to the second floor, which
has simple tapering, knopped balusters and ramped handrail. The
ground floor east room has a fine contemporary coloured marble
fireplace by George Moneypenny and one upper room has a plain
shouldered C18 fireplace, the others are C19. To the rear of
the building is a C19 bakehouse.
