House. Said to be 1791, with early C19 additions and late C19 alterations.
Sandstone ashlar with Welsh slate roof. Two storeys with attic. Main part
of house of three bays, with storey band. On the ground floor are bowed
sash windows of early C19 type, with glazing bars, fluted pilasters, and
cornices. On the first floor are boxed sashes with glazing bars. Attic
dormers have segmental heads and sashes with glazing bars To the right
is an added bay which has a blocked keyed elliptical archway on the ground
floor and a sash with glazing bars above. Within the blocked archway is a
door under an iron openwork porch with leaded canopy. Copings and chimneys
on gables and between main house and added bay. To the right is a former
barn, converted into a drawing room and studio in the late C19. Within the
blocked elliptical archway is a timber bay window with, curved sides. To
each side are four pairs of ventilation slits, with an oval opening above
each. A photograph taken in the late 1870s shows the front door in the
middle bay of the main part of the house, and the barn before conversion.
The house was bought in 1885 by Frank Millet, an American artist who died
when the Titanic sank in 1912. (Houghton, CC: A Walk About Broadway, 1980).
