Timber-frame partly rendered and partly refaced in brick with
decorative applied timber framing and pargetting. Plain tile roof with
gabled ends with pierced bargeboards. Brick axial stacks. PLAN: H-

to right (W). There is a cross-passage on left side of hall and end
stacks, the west end also serving short kitchen range added to W end
in circa C17. The right (E) end crosswing is possibly also C17 but the
corresponding gabled wing on front of W end and the service wings

frame above with canted oriel on brackets. Faced in brick at rear,
gabled cross-wing on right, long gable-ended service wing on left.
INTERIOR: Little altered since C19 and C19 joinery and chimneypieces
survive, including panelled doors, panelled window shutters and
staircase with stick balusters and column newel. Parlour has C19
marble chimneypiece, parlour chamber has larger chamfered Tudor arch
chimneypiece. Dado panelling in parlour and some old plank doors. Most
ceiling beams plastered over. Chamfered ceiling beam in east cross-
wing and kitchen at W end has chamfered beam with cyma stops and large
fireplace. Main range has 3-bay roof with collars and clasped purlins;
