Large House. Mostly of c1820, but possibly refronting an earlier building and
with late C19 or early C20 additions. Stuccoed or rough-cast rendered brickwork
throughout, with Swithland slate roof. 2 storeyed. To the garden front, the
older part is of 4 bays, the outer 2 projecting slightly. That to left has
a canted bay window to ground floor with floor level lights, and a parapet.
Above it, a low 16-light sash window, and over it, a blank recessed panel with
incised Key decoration. The right-hand bay has a higher canted bay window to
round floor, and a deeper sash window above. Each of these outer bays has
full-height pilasters on the angles. 2 central bays have floor-level 15-light
sashes to ground floor, 9-lights above. All windows have moulded lugged
architraves. Deep plain entablature or parapet. 1 lower and reputedly earlier
bay to left. Right hand section is c1900. 2 storeys, 3 bays. The left hand
bay has a parapet decorated with ball finials, and contains a loggia to ground
floor with 2 Tuscan columns behind which a doorway and mullioned window are
recessed. 4-light stone- mullioned window above. Central bay is a full height
canted bay window beneath an embattled parapet, with 5-light mullions. Right
hand bay has a 4-light stone- mullioned window on each floor.
The entrace front is largely late Victorian: 2 bays left of doorway have half-
timbered gables and the door itself is contained in a full-height half-timbered
and jettied gabled porch. Double doors to ground floor and a long low wood
mullioned light above. 1 round arched window to hall at each floor right of
the porch in the earlier part of the house, then a hipped gabled projection
and a later wing with 12-timbered gable and pent roofed extension to ground
floor. Various casement and sash windows and decorative brick sill courses.
Swithland slate roofs of pitch too low to be visible on garden front.
