(formerly listed as

largely destroyed by fire and probably rebuilt by Thomas Tyndale
soon after 1761, altered (possibly by James Burton) late C18,
service wing added (and altered) C19, further alterations and
conservatory c1970. C17 range coursed squared and dressed
limestone with dressed stone quoins. C18 range: rendered. Stone

range with late C18 bow windows at the gable ends; remnants of the
C17 range at the rear. C17 range: 2 storeys and cellar. C18
range: 3 storeys. Single storey conservatory. The remnants of
the C17 range (at the north-east corner) retains one blocked cross-
mullioned window and traces of further similar windows (now with
mullions removed). Symmetrical 2:1:2-windowed entrance front to
the C18 range with rusticated quoins; 3 storey bow windows to the
gable ends: 15-pane sashes (reaching to ground level) to the
ground floor; 12 and 9-pane sashes to the first and second floors
respectively; central Venetian window over the entrance. All
windows with plain stone architraves. C20 door with sunken panels
and a rectangular hall light with decorative glazing bars under a
late C20 flat-roofed porch with fluted columns supporting a fluted
entablature with cornice, parapet and ball finials. Modillion
cornice continued around the bow windows at either gable end which
have single sash windows, one above the other matching those
lighting the entrance front. Some hipped gables, axial, lateral
and gable-end stack.
Neo-classical interior: entrance hall opens via arch into a
staircase hall with a cantilevered stone stair with C20 wrought
iron balustrade. Many C18 features removed during alterations of
1970 including two niches in the entrance hall and a white marble
rococo chimney piece in the drawing room.
