House. C16 or earlier, thatched, facing W. On Clintons Estate
map of 1588 (HRO). Originally an open hall and one and a half
storey N end roofed in line: central chimney and floor inserted
and house converted to lobby entry plan, in early C17, with new
stair formerly in lobby and 4-light diamond mullioned slope
roofed dormer to front (head mortices remain): renovated and 2
storeys rear wing added 1954 and extended to rear (E) 1969, one
and a half storeys, timberframed, and plastered with black
painted plinth. Steep pitched thatched roof gabled to N but
hipped at S over end lean-to with lower eaves, 3-light wood
casements. External gable chimney in C18 red brick on N. 2 3-
light casement dormers on front eaves. Close studded timber

partition, chamfered axial beam and joints in N part with old

being demolished when the S lean-to was substituted in the early
C18. Old dormer over the hall being of unusual interest.
