GV II*

House. C16 and C17 altered c. C19. Timber framed and rendered. Plain
tiled roof. Complex plan, possibly originally a hall house, now with
various framed ranges almost enclosing a courtyard. Front elevation:
2 storeys on plinth, with continuous jetty on 3 brackets, 3 satyrs and
dragon posts at the corners, returned on right elevation. Three
jettied gables projecting from main hipped roof with stack cluster to
centre right, and single stack to the front of that, and projecting at
end left. Three wooden casements on first floor, and 3 shuttered glazing
bar sashes and 1 tripartite shuttered sash on ground floor, with a 9
panelled door off-centre right. Right return: a long, lower framed
range, continuously jettied on both sides. At the rear of this, and
almost closing off the courtyard to south of the house, are 2 C16
structures, set at right angles to each other, timber framed except
for one wall built in English Bond red brick. That adjoining house
of 3 bays. One storey, the upper walls close studded on brick base with
clasped purlins and wind braced roof and large inglenook fireplace.
The second of 4 bays, open to the roof, clasped purlin and wind braced
roof. Original use unknown, but presumably semi-domestic (i.e. washhouse/
brewhouse?). Weather boarded range beyond this, probably slightly
later date, now used as barn.
