- II*

Former manor house, now subdivided into two dwellings, of which one is a
farmhouse. Mid C16 with alterations of C17 and c.1828. A large 3-cell house,
both end cells being of cross-wing form. 2 storeys. Ground storey walls are
of C16 red brick with diaperwork in burnt headers. Upper storey walling
timber-framed and plastered with some early C19 cable-pattern pargetting. The
garden elevation was formerly the entrance front; both cross-wings are jettied
on this side at 1st floor, with heavily moulded fascia-bressumers. At the
rear of the parlour wing is exposed close studding; the gable tie-beam is
jettied on brackets and moulded. Plaintiled roofs (the hipped cross-wings
were gabled until C19). An axial c.1600 chimney of red brick has a sawtooth
shaft; another at the rear rises from a brick gable, with a group of 3
octagonal shafts. At 1st storey are C19 small-pane sashes and at ground
storey various C19 and C20 casements, some with segmental brick heads. In the
parlour wing is an original window with a flat splayed brick head, and wooden
cavetto-moulded mullions in a subframe. In the rear re-entrant angles of both
cross-wings are original lean-to roofed staircase towers. Between them is a
C19 brick lean-to outshut, scratch-dated "EW 1828"; small-pane sashes and a
C20 panelled entrance door. Many good interior features: a rear cross-passage
entrance doorway, moulded and formerly with an arched head; other internal
doorways also moulded, and some with arched heads. Moulded floor beams over
hall and parlour, the former with roll-and-ogee, the latter double-chamfered.
High quality close-studding, but also some later box-framed partitioning with
very large panels. Two newel staircases. Good wind-braced butt-purlin roof;
but unusually, with an intergral section of crownpost roofing. Open
fireplaces have depressed arches carved from the soffits of deep cambered
lintels. Some early C17 panelling, and a little bolection-moulded joinery of
