House, formerly manor house. Late C18, with a rear range of mid C17 with
fragmentary mediaeval core. 2 storeys, 3 windows. Timber-framed and pebble-
dashed on a tarred brick plinth. Hipped plaintiled roofs with internal
chimneys of red brick. A complete C18 facade in the Gothick manner: sash
windows with pointed arched heads; the upper sashes have thick glazing bars in
the form of intersecting tracery (a similar but smaller window over the
entrance has an ogee head). C18 entrance doorway: 6-panelled door and an
entablature on pilasters, the open pediment has within it a semi-circular
fanlight with curved bars. The rear range has typical C17 plain framing and 2

other fragments from an open hall, but this building was otherwise destroyed
during the C17 reconstruction. The front range has modest but quite complete
late C18 joinery.
