An early C18 house probably built by John Tasker restored and extended in C20.
Two storeys and attics brown brick with red brick window dressings, quoins,
stringcourse and cornice. Mansarded slate roof. Brown brick parapet and stone
coping. Seven windows and 3 dormers. The end window bays project. Glazing bars.
All windows have segmental heads except for the central first floor window, which
is flanked by rusticated red pilasters with a red brick pulvinated frieze over
it. Central wooden porch flanked by coupled pilasters with pediment over. The
modern additions in yellow brick are not of special architectural interest. The
interior of the C18 part has a mid C18 staircase with 2 turned blusters to each
tread and scrolled tread ends and an Adamesque oval panel in the hall of a reclining
lady in antique dress with scrolls and an owl, probably representing Minerva,
flanked by swags. Also some contemporary panelling to the hall.
