House, now offices. Circa 1600, incorporating fragment of C14 house, altered
1984. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Main
range facing NW with 2 adjacent rear wings. Stack at junction of main range and
left wing, another stack at right end of main range. Single-storey extension to
rear of right wing. 2 storeys with attics. 2-window range of early C19 sashes
of 16 Lights, and one late C19 similar sash on ground floor. One C19 casement
in gabled dormer. C20 6-panel door in early C19 reeded architrave with paterae;
one stone stp, almost flush with pavement. Chamfered axial beams with lamb's
tongue stops, partly boxed. In right front bay, introduced non-structural
moulded joists. In left front bay, early C19 fireplace, and plain joists of
horizontal section, partly plastered. In left rear wing, wide wood-burning
hearth. Exposed in the right wall is the framing of the end of a C14 hall, with
wide curved display braces trenched into the studs, all heavily smoke-blackened.
