Farmhouse. Late C18, given superficial remodelling in the mid C19. Red brick
with burnt headers, Flemish bond, Plain tiled roof with bands of fishscale
tiles and ridge cresting. Two storeyed, four bays with central door in gabled
porch flanked by 2 and 3-light casement windows with cambered brick heads,
Upper windows are of 2-lights and bear scant relation to the half timbered
gabled dormers which are clearly a Victorian addition. Two axial stacks. To
the right, a range of stabling etc continues the line of the house, then forms
three sides of a yard. The range along the street also has a C18 core, with
the red and blue brickwork, the rest is early C19. In one gable wall earlier
range part of a date is visible 17-5, cut by an inserted loft access. The
rest of the buildings are in the style characteristic of the Shenton Estate,
with brick deep dentilled detailing to eaves cornice and gable ends and
chamfered window and door surrounds.
