House, C17th. Slobbered rubble with slate roof. T-plan, the south wing

plinth and double-chamfered mullioned windows. The north front has
continuous drip courses to both floors. To the left of the door is a
window of one light, to the right one of 3 lights (with 2 lights blocked),
with a blocked 2-light window further right at a lower level, originally
to the stair. On the 1st floor are 2 cross windows, the right-hand one
blocked. Further right, at a lower level and lighting the stair, is a
similar window with 2 lights blocked. Above it is a blocked 2-light
mullioned window with hood. The door has a chamfered surround with
4-centred head. The west gable has 2 2-light mullioned windows (the
left-hand one blocked) with continuous drip course on the ground floor.
On the 1st floor are 2 cross windows (the left-hand one blocked) with
drip course. Above is a 2-light mullioned attic window with hood. The
east gable has a blocked transomed 1st floor window and an attic window
with plain reveals. The rear (south) wall of the main house has a 2-light
mullioned window with hood on the ground floor and a 6-light mullioned
and transomed window on the 1st floor with hood and 2 blocked lights. The west
wall of the rear wing has squared blocks to its lower part with rubble above.
The doorway has plain reveals, with a reconstructed chamfered window surround
with mullion. The south gable is watershot, as is the east wall, which has a
former 5-light double-chamfered mullioned window with one mullion missing.
Interior. The rear wing has a shouldered C18th fireplace with moulded mantel
and segmental head. The main block has a large internal chimney stack in its
east room, now with no fireplace. The moulded handrail and a newel are the
only visible surviving parts of a broad C17th stair.
