House. c1700. Orange brick in irregular bond, pantiled roof. Originally
3 storeys, 5 bays, 2:1:2, reduced to 2 storeys, 5 bays in early C19.
L-shaped plan. Balanced main elevation: C20 boarded door flanked by C20
5-light casements. First-floor band which breaks forward over the former
positions of the original windows. 2-light cross-mullion window over door
with 4-light casements to right and left. Axial stack with offsets and
bands to main range, external end stack to rear wing, hipped roofs.
Interior: closed-string framed newel stair with heavy turned balusters and
moulded handrail: newels with half-balusters, pendants, and finials.
Bolection-moulded dado. (This stair rises through 3 floors to the present
low attics.) Room to the right of the stair is entirely lined with
bolection-moulded panelling including overdoor panels and a dado.
Bolection-moulded fireplace and overmantel; contemporary built-in corner
cupboard. The room above is similarly panelled and also incorporates a
bolection-moulded fireplace with overmantel. (The space between the
panelling and the unplastered brickwork behind it seems to have been
entirely filled with oats chaff.) All the principal doors, and most of the
cupboard doors, are of 2 bolection-moulded panels and hang on their original
hinges. Several are still equipped with box-locks. The upper floors retain
most of their original wide floorboards. This house was moated; part of the
moat survives as a duck-pond to the west.
