Projecting side stack to cross-wing. Coursed and squared sandstone with moulded
stone string and 3 detached red brick stacks set diagonally. Sundial incised in
sandstone of chimney. Similar squared and coursed sandstone to stack to main
range. Above the ridge it is of red brick. The sandstone forms part of the east
wall of the main range. T-plan having cross-passage at rear of chimney in main
range. Main range of 2 storeys. One flush frame small-pane casement and another
of 3-lights at first floor. At ground floor doorway to cross-passage has boarded

with small panes on either side of kitchen doorway. The cross-wing at the south
end of 2 storeys and attic. Gable end has segmental header arches to a small
pane wood casement to the attic and 2 slightly larger windows at first and
ground floors. Interior: Main range. Inglenook hearth of early C17. Main beam
has an ogee-moulding similar to that of Holliars Farmhouse, Church Road,
Shustoke dated 1641 (q.v.). Off this room is the service end with partition
wall. The cross-wing was probably a parlour cross-wing which remains from the
original house on the site. The framing is visible internally. There is vertical
studwork, with close centres of substantial scantling. The ground floor studs in
the wall are double pegged. 2-bay plan with original substantial partition wall
to the centre truss. Moulded main beams have similar ogee-moulding to that in
main range and at Holliars Farmhouse (q.v.). Framing also visible at first
floor. There is an original doorway, now blocked, in the partition wall at first
floor. Through-purlin roof with two tiers of purlins, trenched over the backs of
the principals. Wind bracing to lower tier. Tie beam has arch bracing and struts
between collar and tie-beam. Jowled heads to main posts. A number of internal
doors have strap hinges with fleur-de-lys ends. The house, which is on a moated
site, was bought in late C17/early C18 by Thomas Huntbach for the purpose of
endowing the school and hospital at Church End, Shustoke.
