II*


House. Mid C17. Limewashed brick on wide plinth with mullioned cellar lights and
some stone dressings. Two moulded strings, inconsistent in level and not carried
across entire front, one on 2 levels above ground floor, the other below eaves.
Moulded projecting eaves with bracketted gutter. Plain tiled roof with large end
stacks and 4 hipped dormers. Two storeys; 4 window front, slightly irregular. Stone
mullioned casements, some with transoms. Gabled porch off-centre to left with margin
light door, both C19. Rear elevation altered during C19, with some modern
extensions. Interior. Little__remains of the original interior, except chamfered
beams in one ground floor room. Early C17 panelling and the later C17 staircase
brought in, the latter from a farmhouse in Offham. Interestingly the rear of the
left-hand end stack in the cellar is buttressed by a large stack of unused window
mullions. Blocked up brick windows in the sides of the house may be of Tudor date,
and possibly confirming that the house was a remodelling of a wing of an earlier and
larger house. Some evidence of foundations of other wings has been found.
