Probably the medieval manor house, former rectory, now a house. A medieval build-
ing of small survival, mainly C18, with mid C19 rear extensions. Malmstone walls
with sections of early stone dressings and later brick dressings, now rendered on
the two main elevations, and lined with 'masonry' joints and quoins: stone coping,
cornice and cills. Hipped roof of varied form, and prominent north gable; small
dormers at rear. The altered features and varied materials of the north gable
indicates the form of a medieval hall, which was probably timber-framed, with
later stone cladding: the main east front is of early C18 character, with project-
ing wings: near. - symmetrical of two storeys and attic, 1 (blank) .4.1 (upper
blank) windows. Plain walls, with parapet, sashes, and simple classical doorway
with an oval fanlight. The south range continues in the same style, of two storeys,
3.2 windows, with a glazed verandah on cast-iron columns. The rear elevation is
irregular, with extensions of different date enclosing a small courtyard, the
innermost and oldest wall having sashes and a half-glazed door, beneath a canopy on
brackets. Interior : the main feature is a C15 wood doorframe.
