c1830, remodelling an earlier house and incorporating possibly
a late C18 coach house and stable range as a rear wing.
Further remodelling to interior, c1880, altered c1990. Stucco
with stone quoins, slate-hung to rear, and slate roof.

doorway in gabled porch towards right, two 3-light mullioned
windows to its left, and a squared bay window to the right,
all with hoodmoulds over.
3-gabled garden front, with ogee-headed lights to mullioned
windows in outer gables and full-height bow window to central
Rear wing possibly formerly coach house and stables, the
fenestration largely renewed but a blocked round opening
(perhaps originally a pitching eye) at first-floor level on
INTERIOR: wood panelled entrance hall with early C18-style
stair case with turned balusters, top-lit. Some C18
plasterwork (wall panelling and cornice) survives, but much of
the internal detail is apparently late C19.
