House. C16 core; mid 018 extensions and facade. Timber-framed and rendered;
plaintiles. 2 storeys and attics. 2 plain red brick chimney stacks set
externally on the end walls. Wood modillion cornice. 3 gabled dormers with
fluted bargeboards, spike finials, and 2-light casement windows with old
square-leaded panes. 5 windows to first floor, and 4 similar, but deeper, to
ground floor, all 2-light casements with square-leaded panes. Centrally-placed
Edwardian half-glazed double doors. An open veranda with glazed roof along
the whole ground floor front. 3 bays of C16 framing remain within the house:
to the left of the central entrance is a truss with chamfered main beam and
posts, both with run-off stops, and above it a heavy cambered tie-beam with
arched braces removed; further to the left, another truss has arched braces in
situ. Above it, in the attic, there is a marked change of floor levels. Both
ends of the house were extended to give it the present symmetrical Georgian
form. All the roof-timbers are covered. A timber-framed wing of
indeterminate date at the rear.
