History

Mid C19. During the C19 it was used as the vicarage for the neighbouring parish of Hyssington.

Exterior

Simplified Tudor Gothic style, with irregular plan and roof lines. Service wing to SE. Random rubble with furrowed quoins and surrounds; windows are consistently 2- or 3-light casements. Slate roof with bracketed eaves. Four tall, brick-panelled stacks with corbelled caps over main house. Entrance front faces N and has advanced bay to right; upper storey window under a hood mould. In the centre a gabled porch with diagonal buttresses, and segmental pointed doorway with hood mould, reached by 3 stone steps. Front door is 6-panel. Behind the porch is an advanced bay (housing staircase), with a single window, under a pyramidal roof. To left beyond the stack is a single fixed light in upper storey, and a lancet below. Garden front to W has 3-light windows under hood moulds. Gable to right has bay window of drawing room under a parapet with moulded cornice and coping. To left 2 half dormers with continuous hood mould, and continuous raised verge; 2 windows in lower storey, beneath which are cellar windows with segmental heads. S side less ornate: 2 half raking dormers flanking smaller window in the centre; in the lower storey a single window to right, and a 3-light door with overlight, to drawing room to left. Door is reached by 4 stone steps. E side of house has double-gable. Gable to right has window in lower storey under a hood mould, and doorway to left under a pointed arch, with fixed light above. Gable to left in a walled yard with the service wing. Service wing with lean-to on E side and gabled projection at SE angle. Centrally placed, square stack in brick with panelling and corbelled cap. On W side a single raking half dormer; the lower storey has no fenestration, thus screening off the service wing from the garden. On S side a 3-light window in upper storey and in lower storey a doorway with flanking fixed lights under a common lintel. On E side a raking half dormer, and in lower storey a doorway with overlight and casement to right under a common lintel. Gabled projection with C20 brick stack.

Interior

Open-well stair with ornate pierced balusters. Drawing room has fireplace with timber eared surround. Windows have boarded reveals. In servants' wing a straight stair with handrail at the top, and a winder stair, both in timber.
