Detached house. C18, probably a remodelling of an earlier house, early C19 details
to front elevation. Whitewashed rendered stone rubble ; slate roof, gabled at left
end, hipped at right end ; rear left stack to main block, right end stack probably
dismantled.
Plan: T plan with a single depth block, 2 rooms wide facing the road with principal
rooms to left and right of a central entrance passage. The rear wing may be C17 in
origin, it has a lean-to adjoining at the left.
Exterior: 2 storeys and attic to main block, rear wing 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3 bay
front with rusticated quoins, a recessed panelled central front door with a
rectangular fanlight with margin panes and glazing bars. The doorcase has panelled
reveals and soffit and pilasters with sunk mouldings and a Doric entablature with
triglyph frieze. First floor window above door is a 12-pane sash, the outer windows
are 16-pane sashes with segmental arches to the embrasures.
Interior: The rear wing has 1 ground floor and 1 first floor deeply chamfered cross
beam, the beams of probably C17 date. The main block has C19 joinery and a dog-leg
stick baluster stair rising to the attic with a ramped wreathed handrail. Roof
structure replaced in the C20 but 2 earlier C18 trusses survive below, one is fairly
complete with a pegged apex and a deeply cambered collar bolted on to the principals.
A handsome town house forming a good pair with Forde House to the right (q.v.). At
one time the building was used as the Police Station.
