House. Circa late C17 or early C18 extended in mid to late C18 and mid C19. Stone
rubble. Rag slate and asbestos slate roofs with hipped ends. Truncated brick end
Plan: Complicated arrangement and the chronology of the extensions is uncertain.
The original house appears to have comprised a 2 room and through passage plan, the
left hand room heated by an end stack, the right hand room room by a lateral stack
and the chamber above the right hand room heated by an end stack. In circa early to
mid C18 a service wing was added to the rear of the left hand room containing a small
dairy and a large kitchen beyond heated by an end stack, with a stair in a shallow
projection in the angle between the rear wing and front range; the stair probably
replaced in the later C18.
Probably in the late C18 a further wing of 1-room plan was added to the rear of the
passage and right hand room, heated by a rear lateral stack. In circa mid C19 a
small cottage of 1-room plan was added to the rear of the right hand wing.
Exterior: 2-storeys. Symmetrical 3 window front. Central entrance with open Tuscan
porch, C19 6-panel door and fanlight above. 2 early C19 12-pane sashes on ground
floor and 3 late C18 12-pane sashes on first. Wide early C19 3-light casement in
side wall of right hand rear wing.
Interior: Wide stair hall with through passage continuing to rear. Circa early C19
segmental hall arch with fluted pilasters and circa early C19 stair with turned
balusters and wreathed rail. Circa C18 oval roof light above stair. Left hand room
has C18 panelling with dada rail and eared architrave to C18 chimney-piece with C20
grate. Moulded circa mid to late C18 cornice with roundels in corners. Right hand
room with circa early C19 plaster cornice and late C19 Delable slate chimney-piece.
Rear wing on left has heavy roughly chamfered cross beams, possibly reused. First
floor with almost complete C18 raised and-fielded panelled doors. Chamber above
right hand room has a heavy moulded circa early C18 cornice. Room on first floor of
rear left hand wing remodelled in late C19 with marble chimney-piece and ornate
plaster cornice.
Roof Structure: Circa late C17 roof structure above front range with five trusses,
morticed at the apices and probably with tie beams. Complete carpenters marks. 4
trusses above rear left hand wing probably mid C19 with cambered collars lapped and
bolted onto the face of the principals. Roof structure above right hand wing not
