alterations. Cob and rubble walls mainly rendered, exposed rubble to ground floor
of left-hand side. flipped thatch roof. Brick stacks at either end and one axial
stack. Large rubble stack with brick shaft lateral to right-hand rear wing.

outshuts were built along the rear wall and a wash-house added in a 1 storey wing
behind the right-hand end. A granary was built set back from the left-hand end of
the house in the C18 or early C19 and in circa 1900 this was converted to domestic
use and at the same time the house was thoroughly remodelled internally and a wing
added behind its left-hand end as a separate cottage, possibly servant's
A further service range enclosing the courtyard at the rear was built either at this
stage or during the second half of the C19.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of early - mid C20 3-light
casements. The left-hand end of the house projects slightly. To its right is C19
or early C20 panelled and part-glazed door behind elaborate Edwardian wooden lattice
porch. C20 double part-glazed door at right-hand end. Set back from left-hand end
is former granary with large early C20 bay window on 1st floor against left-hand end
wall. Wing extends to the rear with carriageway going beneath it to courtyard.
Interior: most of the internal features date from the remodelling of circa 1900 but
one original fireplace survives with chamfered and stopped wooden lintel. This
house forms an attractive group with its thatched farm buildings and occupies an
important position adjoining the churchyard.
