Sergeant family, with earlier origins. Orange brown brick in
Flemish bond, with orange brick to window arches and gable

entrance-hall front. 3 storeys, 3 irregular bays. Entrance to
left of centre has original wooden architrave with shallow hood,
C20 door beneath 3-pane overlight in reveal. Windows to either
side have C20 12-pane casements in original openings with
cambered rubbed-brick arches and stone sills. First-floor windows

brick arches and stone sills. Low second floor has small hatches,
each with a pair of board doors with strap hinges in flush frames
with stone sills. Stepped eaves with wooden gutter on paired
modillion brackets. Tumbled-in brick to raised right gable. End
stacks. Right return, which incorporates part of the former gable
end of an earlier building on the left (streetfront) side , has
a small C20 12-paned window to ground-floor and an original board
door beneath a segmental arch. to the second floor. Rear,
adjoining the priory ( see item 14/15 ), has an angled corner
jettied out at second floor level. Interior: Ground floor front
and rear right rooms have moulded dado rails, panelled cupboard
doors and 6-panel doors in architraves. Open well staircases with
plain balusters, grip handrail and slender turned newels. Unusual
7 bay collared-rafter roof with clasped purlins: the lower part
of each principal rafter is supported by a post which is tied
by a short horizontal to the rafter foot, and braced with a
raking strut to the floor joist. Pegged mortise and tenon joints
throughout, with additional wrought iron straps to the raking
struts. Recent renovation work on the ground floor revealed
traces of painted decoration beneath the wallpaper: stencilled
floral patterns in the rear room, painted floral murals in the
front room and blockwork in the hall. Originally part of the same
property as the priory, this range was added shortly after the
main house was built.
