- II

Former manor house. Mid C16 with remodelling of c.1630 and C19. Originally
of 3-cell cross-entry plan. 2 storeys. Timber framed and plastered.
Plaintiled roof; an axial chimney of c.1630 has a square shaft with a central
pilaster. Two C19 chimneys to right have twin square flues and heavy square
caps (the C17 chimney was also recapped). Late C19 casements with transomes
at ground storey, C18 casements at 1st storey. Two C17 2-storey entrance
porches, gabled; one at lobby-entrance, one at former cross-entry: each has an
early C19 6-panelled door, the upper pair of panels glazed, and a simple
pediment above. Some good mid C16 framing exposed: very closely-spaced
studding, broad broach-stopped chamfers to main beams. The hall fireplace has
a lintel with chamfered arched soffit. Circa 1630, a fine plaster ceiling was
added to the parlour. Moulded ribs divide the ceiling into panels, with
fleurs-de-lys and acorns at intersections. In the centre of several panels
are impressed with the initials "F.A." (the Fastolfe family were at Pettaugh
Hall in early C17). A vinescroll freize forms a cornice. Full C17 oak
wainscotting, with arcading above the fireplace. The chamber above also has
traces of a scheme of moulded plasterwork. The service cell to right was
truncated in C19, and alterations made to rear (painted brickwork). A small
wing to rear of parlour is of C16/C17 origin.
