Exterior

History: The history of the house can be traced back through documentary evidence to the early C18, and although the character of the present building is largely of c1830, this represents some new building, together with the remodelling of an existing property.

Exterior: The house comprises 3 distinct sections: the earliest parts are the advanced gabled range to the centre (whitewashed random rubble), and the lower bay to the W which is rendered (said to conceal a timber frame) to front elevation, brick (English garden wall bond) to the W, and rubble to the S. The rendered recessed E range appears to be entirely of c1830, is symmetrically designed with hipped roof and axial stack. Slate roofs throughout, carried on plain overhanging eaves, and probably all of c1830; gable end and axial stacks. Entrance in angle of the left hand bay and the gabled central range: reeded architrave with rosettes at angles, and partly glazed door, in trellis-work veranda of 3 arched bays: 6-pane sash window above the doorway, and blind windows on each floor to its left. Advanced range to the right has tripartite sash window to ground floor, 12-pane sash above with cambered brick head; small paned iron casement windows cutting through the overhanging eaves above. Lower range beyond has inserted window to ground floor, and 16-pane sash window above. Return elevation to E has central arched blind windows, flanked by sash windows (12-pane to ground floor, 6- pane above). S elevation resembles that to N: 2x12-pane sash windows on each floor in the E bay (floor-height windows to ground floor); 12-pane sash window on each floor in gabled range, with small-paned iron casement cutting the eaves above; 16-pane sash window to first floor in left hand (W) bay.

Interior: Most internal detail is consistent with c1830 date, including plaster cornices, reeded doorcases, and steep curved staircase.

A fine early C19 small country house which retains a consistency of character in its internal and external detail, and which is of additional interest for its earlier origins.
