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
stack. Main block continues left another 2 rooms with an axial stack between. This

Exterior: regular but not symmetrical 2:5 window front. The left 2-window section

part-glazed panelled door behind a contemporary gabled porch with shaped bargeboards
and a round-headed outer arch. The roof is hipped to right.

main house appears to retain a good deal of C19 joinery and otner detail including a
stick baluster geometric staircase.
