Farmhouse, now house and part of shop. Late C17/early C18, extended C19 and C20.
Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar quoins and wooden lintels; concrete
plain-tile roof with brick stacks. 3-unit through-passage plan with rear stair
projection and later additions. 2 storeys plus attic. Regular 4-window front has
the entrance in bay 2 below a 2-light casement, 3-light casements in bays one
and 3, and has a C20 projection in bay 4; most openings have chamfered lintels.
Steep-pitched roof has 3 C20 roof dormers, and has a ridge stack to right of the
passage and a second stack on the right gable parapet. C19 range attached to
left end of house (part of Adams Stores) projects below a gable. Rear of house
has a tall gabled stair projection but is largely masked by minor later
additions. Interior: stop-chamfered cross beams, large open fireplace backing
onto through passage, winder stair rising to attics with ball finial to
continuous octagonal newel, butt-purlin roof. Adams Stores projects 1 bay into
the Manor Farm House on the ground floor, but the rear of it, a C19 range, is
not of special architectural interest.
