Farmhouse. Circa 1774, by John Gwynn(e) (1713-86) of Shrewsbury.

brick eaves cornice and parapeted gable ends; pairs of gabled eaves

with painted lintels; roughly central doorway has door with 6 flush
panels, 3-part rectangular overlight and gabled lattice wooden porch.
Rear: 3-bays with blocked central doorway; left hand sash has been cut
down to create French casements and C20 casement has been inserted to

storey and attic; 2 gabled eaves dormers to south and one to north,and
integral brick end stack; north front has pair of boarded doors to right
with 4-part segmental-headed overlight and C20 lean-to addition to left.
Interior of house not inspected but likely to be of interest because
of its architect. John Gwynn(e) was the architect of the English Bridge
in Shrewsbury and Atcham Bridge, one of the founder members of the
Royal Academy, and the author of a book on the planning of London.
The farmhouse forms a close group with a former coach house to the
east. VCH, Vol VIII p.117; Colvin, p.374; John Summerson, Architecture
