Farmhouse, mid C16 with major remodelling of 1919. Timber-framed, encased in
red brick of 1919. Plaintiled roof: 2 rear chimneys of late C16/early C17,
one with diagonally-set square flues, and pink/buff bricks of 1580-1620; the
other with sawtooth shaft of red brick, c.1600-1650. 2 storeys. 3 windows.
External features of 1919: small-pane casements, a pair of bay windows at

panelled door, the upper 4 panels glazed. Before 1919 the house consisted of
a cross-wing to right, a cross-entry to centre and a hall range to left which

carved shafts with moulded capitals, now internal. Beneath the jetty there
has been an oriel window and sidelights. Blocked cavetto-moulded mullioned
windows in two walls. Good unchamfered floor joists, laid flat. 3 rooms have
lintelled open fireplaces. Framing otherwise largely concealed. The roof was
entirely rebuilt 1919. Included despite alterations for good quality features
