with C19 sashes with vertical glazing bars only. 1st floor central window has sun

early C18 door surround behind. This has elaborate flat hood on carved brackets
with tulip design, panelled reveals and 3 stone steps. Oak doorcase with fielded
panels, the top 4 cut away and glazed. Rear elevation has central C19 2 storey
extension, stuccoed with incised lines to represent masonry with verniculated
keystones and 1 mask keystone. Interior has dado panelling and moulded plastic
ceiling to hall. The lounge retains C18 butterfly and H-hinges to the window

later C19 sashes. 1st floor retains early C18 staircase balustrading (the lower part
of the staircase is C19), 4 early C18 2 panelled doors and a wooden fire surround with
corner urns and central patera with swags. Behind the doorcase is a date of 1639 but
the existing building appears no earlier than the early C18. The building was
formerly the dower house to Oldfield Lawn. The alterations were made for Major General
Oldfield who had 22 children.
