rubble, parts maybe cob; stone rubble stacks topped with 19 brick; main part of
house has red tile roof, part is thatch and service wing has slate roof.
Plan: basically an L-shaped building. The main block faces south and has a 5-room
plan. The main house is those 3 rooms to right (east) which has 2 axial stacks.
The right of these stacks lies between the 2 principal rooms. Left of these is an
entrance lobby to a stair in its own block projecting to rear. Dining room left of
the entrance lobby and kitchen wing projecting at right angles to rear with end

part-glazed panelled door behind a contemporary gabled porch with shaped bargeboards
and a round-headed outer arch. The roof is hipped to right.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey although the
main house appears to retain a good deal of C19 joinery and otner detail including a
stick baluster geometric staircase.
