House, now offices. C16 with later extensions and a C18 front.
Timber-framed; roughcast rendered; C20 plaintiled roof with a
paired modillion eaves soffit.

with plain lower sashes in ground glass. All windows have
flush cased frames. A central doorcase with deep reveals has a

INTERIOR: the whole interior is timber framed, but the front
range has extensive late Georgian overlay: boxed-in beams,
6-panel doors, panelled internal shutters.
2 rear chimney-stacks are flanked by alcoves. The top storey
is an early C19 addition with a typical upper stair: stick
balusters, rounded newels, curved handrail. Part of the timber

The south wall is a shared partition wall with the adjoining
house where the studding is exposed and, on the ground storey,
covered with extensive early C16 wall paintings (see entry for

in the original upper wall now overlooks a C19 stair, which is
linked to a rear extension. A C16 wing extending from part of
the rear has a 2-bay ground storey room with an ogee-moulded
main beam and cross-beam.
