Large corner house. C17, modified. Rendered and colourwashed, Ham and artificial stone dressings; concrete plain tiles
between coped gables; brick chimney stacks. Double roof plan; 2 storeys with basement and attics. 3 bays. Plinth,
string courses, rusticated quoins, coped gables to each bay; 4-light C20 mullioned windows to ground floor, 3-light
first floor and blind 2-light to second floor, only these last original albeit eroded; small Venetian window to first
floor centre bay: in basement to bay 1 a 4-light mullioned window: to lower bay 2 a C20 door and fanlight in architrave
under open pediment on console brackets; concrete steps up to door, with earlier wrot-iron handrail. North elevation, 2

frieze, and other ground floor rooms has C18 pine panelling and doors. The house never an actual manor house, has
