Manor house. Late C17 and early C19. Limestone ashlar and rubble with
ashlar dressings; old plain-tile roof and brick stacks. L plan, extended.
2 storeys plus attic. Ashlar 5-window front, said to have been added in
1805, has central 6-panel door and sashes to 3 floors, full height and wider at
ground floor, with first-floor plat-band and plain parapet. Projecting stack
on left gable-wall. Right gable-wall, rear, and rear wing to left have gable
parapets with bracket kneelers and pairs of cross windows or their remains.
Surrounds have roll-mouldings to head and sides. Further wing of rubble with
timber lintels projects to left from rear wing, and in the angle with the gable
of the main range is a C18 semi-octagonal stair tower with moulded corbelling
at the eaves. Single-storey service wings entered fruther to left and rear.
Interior: Two ground floor rooms have fielded panelling and 2 stairs have C18
turned balusters. A late C17 stair with winders and turned balusters rises
from first floor to attics. The roof to the main block masks the surviving
double-gabled roof with central flat which has 2 rows of butt purlins. The
house is said to have been rebuilt after the Civil War by a former Solicitor
General to Charles II.
