Farmhouse. Mid C16 core with considerable later modernisation and various
rear additions. The core is probably timber-framed, now entirely encased in
late C18 red brick; plaintiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. A main range with
projecting cross wing to left. 3 windows to main range, mid C20 3-light
large-paned mullion and transom casements under flat brick arches. Similar
windows under segmental arches to cross wing. 2 doorways: 6-panel doors with
glazed top panels. Brick dentil eaves cornice. The main features externally
are the 2 internal stacks with groups of 3 and 4 detached octagonal flues with
moulded bases. The ceiling of one ground floor room in the main range has
ornamental plasterwork, probably late C17: the ceiling is divided into 2
halves, both with moulded cornices: in the centre of each half is a cartouche,
set within a square panel; one of the cartouches is bisected by a later
panelled partition. Another room has a roll-moulded floor beam, evidently
shortened in C19 when the staircase lobby was formed. C19 straight stairs
