Statement of Interest

The house was very heavily renovated and extended in 1980/81, consent being reluctantly granted retrospectively. The NE gable formerly boasted unusual crowsteps while the SW was slated over; the old stacks had thackstanes, suggesting, along with the steep pitch of the roof, that it was originally thatched.
