10/167 Ruins of the old
Country house. 1712, possibly by Francis Smith, remodelled 1815 by Thomas
Cundy, partially demolished 1889. Sandstone ashlar and some brick. Main
(north) front survives, and a little of the other walls. North front:
large portico has a pediment with Plymouth arms supported on six Corinthian
columns (four to front); this is Cundy's addition to a facade of 2 + 5 + 2
windows, the divisions defined by Doric pilasters; the windows have moulded
architraves and cornice. The house was rendered roofless by a firework
display in honour of the Shah of Persia in July 1889. It was set in grounds
by Humphrey Repton, altered when the new house was built. (Howard Colvin,
