Large detached house. Early C17 core extensively altered early
C19, probably by John Buckle. C17 core stone built, C19
alterations in brick. Exterior now mostly rendered. Entrance
front and left-hand return. Slate roof with ashlar and brick
stacks. 'U'-shaped plan. Two storeys and attic. 1:3:1
windowed entrance front with gables projecting forwards right and
left. Single-light, 2, 3 and 5-light hollow-chamfered stone-
mullioned casements (probably C19 replacements) with leaded panes
and stopped hoods. C19 fielded 6-panel door at rear of a flat-
roofed open-sided flat-roofed porch off-centre left. Three-
windowed left-hand return lit by 16-pane sashes. One 20-pane sash

Single large projecting ashlar stack with offsets rear left.
Interior not accessible but according to the Victoria County
History a two-storey stone hall block of c1600 with indications of
a screens passage at the west end remains at its centre. This
range probably extended further west and had a cross wing to the
east. The house lies on a moated site.
