C18 house. Service wing to right possibly remaining part of earlier-C18 house.
Red brick in Flemish bond, wing English bond. Slate double-span hipped roof and
parapet with moulded wood bracketed cornice. Double depth plan. 2 storeys,
symmetrical, 3 bays. Sashes with glazing bars, 12 pane ground-floor, 6-pane first
floor. Flat brick arches and plain stone sills. Central panelled door with
sidelights with rectangular fanlight and porch with 2 pairs of wood Tuscan columns
supporting entablature. 5-bay rear elevation of sashes. Semi-circular ground
floor bay window with sashes on south-west garden side; circal early-C19 wooden
veranda. Service wing has irregular fenestration. Interior is largely intact and
retains most of its plaster cornices which vary in design and elaboration from room
to room, but are mainly variants of acanthus and anthemiom. The finest sequence of
rooms is the hall, stairwell and upper landing. The hall is entered through a
glazed screen with large traceried fanlight, arches are supported by fluted
pilasters and capitals, and the dog-leg staircase has a wreathed rail supported by
wrought-iron balusters, and is lit by a lantern with a good plasterwork frieze.
The best fireplaces are later C19 with black marble surrounds. The older block was
much altered in the late C18 and C19.
