crenellated parapets to south west elevation, intermediate and gable end ashlar
stacks, together with a massive external stack to north east side wall. Stone
slates and Welsh slates. Irregular 'L' plan, obscured by alterations and additions.
South west elevation; two storeys, four bays, with advanced two storey porch at
junction of earlier house and later additions; Porch with moulded merlons to
crenellations, above a dripmould to the head of an early C17 2-light ovolo moulded
mullioned window with leaded lights. Below, a refashioned moulded surround to the
doorway, with a planked and studded door. To the south east of the doorway, the
gable of the added C18 range with C19 sash windows and casements. A single semi-
circular headed light at first floor level accompanies a similar window in the
adjacent C17 range. To the north west of the doorway, a two bay hall, with a two
storey bay window to the end bay. Each hall bay has a tall 2-light chamfer mullioned
window with leaded lights, below a stringcourse with a shallower 2-light opening
above, below a stringcourse with embattled parapet above. The crenellations are
returned around the north west corner, which is chamfered. The north east elevation
has a catslide roof to the north west end, and a 3-light chamfer mullioned window
with dripmould, above two plain doorways of different heights. Further to the south,
an external stack shouldered on the south east side and with the seatings for two
diagonally set stone chimneys, now removed. The adjoining C18 range has 2-light
flush mullioned windows to the north west elevation, and sash windows without glazing
bars to the south east front. A stone doorway with plain jambs to the north west
elevation is enclosed by a C19 half glazed lean-to. Interior; the C17 range contains
an unaltered two bay hall, with a cambered ceiling comprised of twelve panels framed
with deeply undercut moulded beams. The hall has a C17 hearth with a massive
chamfered flat lintel and quoins, with a doorway which has been cut into the rear
wall of the hearth. There is a later smaller hearth with a plain surround to the
north west gable. The hall also has a wide C17 turned baluster open well stair of
two flights, leading to the former solar, now much obscured by C20 partitions, but
containing a fine late C17 moulded hearth surround at the north east end. Elsewhere,
various C17 panelled doors, and a moulded plaster cornice to the porch entrance.
