Former farmhouse. Early C17 with a probably C16 service range to rear. 2
storeys with attics and 1 storey with attics. Timber-framed and plastered
with extensive restored C18 cable-pattern pargetting. Plaintiled roofs with
axial and external chimneys of red brick. Small-pane casements and sashes
mainly of C20. Boarded C20 entrance door. The C17 range has complete
unmoulded timber-framing fully exposed. Some diamond-mullioned windows, now
internal. A stairwing has a newel staircase rising through 3 storeys.
Clasped-purlin roof. The earlier single-storey range has unchamfered flat
joists and a large open lintelled fireplace. A chimney is scratch-dated 1791,
the probable approximate date of 2 corner cupboards and other alterations.
The house stands adjacent to a complete mediaeval moat, no doubt that
surrounding the earlier house of the manor of Tarston.
