To 1st floor a reused C15 canted oriel window of 6 lights with stone
mullions and cusped tracery. The base has 4 moulded courses with stone
ornament between of roses, leaves and lozenges. The oriel has a hood
mould, and to either side of its stone roof a string course which stops
short of the end walls. This part of the wall is in ashlar and it is

To the right of the oriel is a carved corbel in the figure of an angel.
The 2 bays to the right of the door consist of a canted C19 ashlar bay of
3 front lights and single side lights, in Tudor style with pointed heads and
hood moulds and a C20 3 light copy with plain lintel over. Above are 2
through eaves stone gabled dormers containing C19 3 light windows with
pointed heads, the central light being taller, and stepped hood moulds over.
The later 2 bay extension has a C17 oak door with stone surround and cornice
and 2 C20 3 light windows. Interior has a reused C17 staircase with
barley twist balusters, rather widely spaced and with C15 applied carved
figures to newel posts. The landing string is a carved panel with C17
ornamentation. The fireplace in the cross wing is a wide shallow arched
C16/17 moulded stone surround which appears to have been cut down, as it
stands very low. The house has many reused items in its interior which
may date from a previous occupant of the house known to be a collector of
