Country house. Partially late C16, but mainly later C17. Coursed ironstone
rubble with ashlar dressings and stone tiled roof. Entrance (north) front is ---
2 storeys with attics, symmetrically arranged with outer projecting coped gabled
wings, which each contain a lofty 3-tiered mullioned and transomed window,
and 3-light mullion to attic. Between them is a flat roofed porch with central
pedimented false-gable, and 4-centred arched doorway beneath it flanked by
pilasters, with outer mullioned and transomed windows. 3 2-light mullioned
windows to 1st floor behind, and central attic gables with 2-light mullioned

west walls, one to each floor in the gable end.

South front is also late C17, 2 storeyed with hipped roof and attics, and
13 bays, 4-5-4. The central section is slightly higher with coved eaves cornice,
and central pedimented doorway with round-arched niche above. Windows are 2-light
wood mullions and transoms with stone architraves, hipped gabled dormers to
attics, probably C20. Gable and axial stacks.

Interior is in very poor condition, but includes a number of fine stone fireplaces.
