Originally an old Manor House of the De Greys, later in the C16 it passed to
Sir George Colt. In tle early C19 it was refronted and altered when all but
a small part of the original building was obliterated. The present building
is early C19 white brick but it may incorporate some of the earlier frame.
2 storeys. 4 window range, double-hung sashes with glazing bars, in flush
cased frames. The ground storey has a tall 3-light bay window at the east
end. The doorway has a Tuscan portico with plain columns and a cornice. Roof
tiled, gabled, with ornamental bargeboards and a modillion eaves soffit. A
lower wing extends at the west end with grouped shafted chimney stacks, a survival
from the earlier house.
