House, mostly 1661. Rough cast render probably over brick to west and south
elevations, brick to rear. Welsh slate roof to front and rear wings, Swithland
slate to rear of main range. 2 storeyed with attics. Main facade of 5 bays,
symmetrical with 3 projecting gables: the outer ones contain full height canted
bay windows with hollow chamfered stone mullions, and hoodmoulds. 2-light
casements to attic. Central gable over porch, a round arched opening, with
six panelled door within, and single light set in round arched recess above,
over which is the date on a carved stone. Inner bays each contain a 3-light

Later hipped roofed bay to left, c1930. Gable and axial brick stacks. Rear

extensions between them. The gable is of brick with blue diaper work and has
a 3-light horizontally sliding sash window to ground floor, and a 2-light casement
to first floor and attic above. All windows have cambered brick heads. Evidence
that the roof was heightened in the C19. In the rear of the main range one
upper 3-light horizontally sliding sash window is visible over which is another
decorated datestone. One hipped gabled dormer in roof. Left hand wing largely
obscured by later additions, but is in 2 parts. Its garden front (south side)

window to left, a central 2-light casement, and 3-light casement to right in
full-height round-arched recess. Upper windows also 3-light casements, set
