House, now farmhouse. Late C16 with porch dated 1625 and
additions to right of C18. Timber framed and roughly dressed
stone but largely rendered. Brick addition and graduated
stone slate roof. T-shaped 2-storey plan with 2-storey porch
to cross-passage and 1-bay brick addition. Gabled crosswing
projects front and rear. 2-storey porch within angle has
moulded segmental-headed outer doorway, Tudor-arched inner
door, 1625 date plaque below Hyde coat of arms, 5-light
mullion and transom first floor window, moulded band,
sundial and cornice. The hall (left) has 2 weathered
buttresses and 2 cross windows with segmental heads. 6-light
mullion and transom first floor window and coved eaves.
Similar 6 and 7-light windows to crosswing which has a later
door. Left gable exposes square-panel timber framing and has
a small 2-storey gabled wing. The rear has a similar door, a
buttress, a 4-light mullion window and coved eaves but the
principal feature is the 2-storey bay to the upper end of
the hall. It has coved jetties at first floor and eaves
levels, corner posts with carved capitals, a 3-light mullion
and transom ground floor window and 10-light window the full
width of the upper level. The crosswing has a C20 door on
ground floor, an enlarged first floor window and an owl hole
within the gable. Total of 3 ridge chimney stacks, the
principal one having 2 diagonally set brick shafts. All of
the early windows have diamond section timber mullions and
leaded casements. Interior: A large inglenook fireplace with
chamfered bressumer beam backs onto the cross passage which
retains studded oak doors at each end. The hall, as well as
the chamber above, are entirely panelled, in some parts the
panels having Jacobean enrichment.Chamfered ceiling beams
and cross-beams have stepped stops. Plain staircase inserted
into cross passage. The house is an important survival in
terms of its plan; its timber framing in the north-west
tradition and its well preserved internal features. C19
