II*

Farmhouse and adjoining cottage. 1630 on date stone.
Coursed rubble plinth, English garden wall bond brick, stone
dressings and a graduated stone slate roof. T-shaped
baffle-entry plan with two storeys (plus attic). Two bays, the
first projecting as the head of the T. Stone plinth and
stone quoins. House-part has 6-light double-chamfered
mullion and transom window with hoodmould. The door, which
is to the right, has a moulded surround with Tudor-arched
lintel and elaborate carved panel above with date, Davenport
shield and the initials "WDED" (William and Elizabeth
Davenport). Bay 1 has a 4-light chamfered mullion and
transom window at first floor with leaded lights and
hoodmould. Bay 2 has a small 2-light mullion window and a
4-light mullion and transom window as above. The gable to
bay 1 is coped with kneelers and has a 2-light chamfered
mullion attic light surmounted by an arched light above the
hoodmould. A similar window appears in the dormer to bay 2
which has a coped gable with kneelers. Diagonally set ridge
chimney shafts at right and left. Timber lean-to addition
against left wall and a 4-light chamfered mullion and
transom window at first floor level and 6-light
double-chamfered mullion and transom with king mullion at ground.
Two 5 and one 6-light mullion and transom windows to rear
as well as 2 2-light mullion windows and a 2-light attic
window as above. Interior: ovolo-moulded beams which are
carved on 3 sides and have stepped stops. Oak panelled
parlour. C19 partitions detract only from the spatial
qualities of the house-part. A remarkably well preserved
early example of both brick construction and multi-floored
planning.
