Garden building, said to be a deer-keeper's house of 1623, thematically,
related to the building work of Sir Hamon Le Strange, 3rd Bt. and perhaps
therefore the work of William Edge or his family, stonemasons. Partly rubble
and partly squared and coursed carstone with galleting, stone and stuccoed
brick dressings. Roofless. 2 storey with attics. Vernacular style with some
classical references. Ground floor with 2 stone and stuccoed brick ventilation
hole openings with classically inspired tracery of 4 roundels enclosing quatre-
foils, 2 first floor large rectangular windows, one blocked and one open but
without tracery, rusticated stuccoed brick surrounds. Central doorcase with
moulded architrave surround with imposts and keystone. Stone plinth,
quoins stone at base, stuccoed brick above, stone string course and stone
coped battlemented parapet. Returns with single ground and 2 first floor
windows, central parapet battlements heightened as stacks. Interior previously
