Late C18 house in grounds. Brown brick. 2 storeys and basement, 5 double-hung

pilasters and entablature with acanthus leaf frieze, modillion cornice
and central carving in high relief of an eagle with spread wings; panels
either side of door with consoles supporting archivolt and varved keystones;
fanlight, 6 fielded panel door. Ground floor windows have wood surrounds
with carved consoles supporting entablature; reeded frieze with carved
ram's head at each end above console. 1st floor windows have wood architraves
and carved keystones of ram's heads and swags. 2nd floor windows have
architraves and flat arches. 2 circular carved plaques at 1st floor level,
4 oval carved plaques at 2nd floor level. Parapet with 4 stone vases.
Fine wrought iron gates with brick piers surmounted by stone vases. 2
other sets of entrance piers with vases. Interior - ground and 1st floor
rooms contain very fine imported panelling, mantelpieces etc of various
periods, but the permance of these additions is uncertain as the owner
specializes in the sale of "period rooms" and antique garden ornaments.
The former stable block to the left has had Tudor archways and windows
grafted on to a basically Georgian design as a result of the Owner's occupation.
The house was lived in at one time by the novelist Manville Fenn.
