buff/orange brick with a pilaster strip at the front. Casements of c.1900,
those at ground storey with segmental heads and hoodmoulds. Flat-roofed
splayed entrance porch of c.1900 in gault brick; boarded door. A gabled 2-
storey bay, central and slightly set forward, added c,1900. The house has two
cells of c.1600, with good but unmoulded framing; the cell to right of chimney
was remodelled or extended c.1900. Close studding and windbraced clasped-
purlin roof. Blocked open fireplaces. One chamber has had a series of early
C17 painted designs on each plaster panel around the room: a strapwork form in
grey with stylised leaves and head of perhaps a thistle;one is exposed, the
others may be traced. On a former exposed gable to left (now internal) is
some high-quality C17 pargetting with a rich vinescroll frieze and raised and
moulded panels beneath. A lower service range of 2 bays was added to left in
C17. A number of C16 carved oak features from other buildings were
incorporated in the house c.1900.
