of 1821 in ashlar with a late C19 added bay to left. Central
rendered C19 gabled porch covers a panelled door with traceried
fanlight and stone surround. To left a plain sash, to right a
later C19 tripartite window. Above are 2 plain sashes and a later
C19 tripartite window. The tripartite windows are enlargements
of the 1821 openings. The later C19 bay is in coursed limestone
rubble with ashlar quoins and has single tripartite windows to
each floor. At the rear is the date of 1821 to apex of a raised
qable above a range of the late Cl7. Interior retains

stair with imitation splat balusters and the drawing room, having
a white marble fireplace, plastered panelled walls and moulded
ceiling, are of the later C19. The rear range has stop chamfer
beams of late C17 type and the extensive cellars beneath the
front range fossilize the plan of the earlier house.
