- II

Farmhouse. Early C18, altered mid-C19. Brick with steeply-pitched and
partly hipped plain tiled roof and brick end stacks with tiled offsets.
Two storeys and attic with dormer. Five bays. Windows have cambered heads.
Two ground floor and four first floor windows retain their mullioned and
transomed wood window frames. Two ground floor windows to left replaced by
16-pane C19 sash. Central first floor window is blind. C20 gabled dormer
with 3-light casement. Central entrance has a C19 timber gabled porch with
trellis infill and there is a six-panelled door within (four flush panels,
two glazed upper panels). Single-bay, single-storey wing to right with den-
tilled eaves cornice and 3-light casement in front elevation. Interior
recorded to have central hall with a dog-leg staircase and two panelled rooms
to the north-west of the house. The panelling dates from about 1650 and is
reused from an older building to the east of the house which is probably C16
and altered in the C18. It is part timber-framed and part refaced with brick,
and is linked to the present house by a brick wall. (VCH, IV, p 363-4).
