Farmhouse. Probably 1793 with mid C18 remains. Coursed squared grey
gritstone and ashlar, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays.
Plinth and rusticated quoins. Central 6-panel door with fanlight in
architrave with attached Tuscan columns and reeded round arch with
keystone. Flanking Venetian windows with elaborate detailing: the
mullions are attached Tuscan columns, the capitals missing, standing on a
projecting sill which is supported by 2 fluted corbels. The window heads
are reeded and have small keystones. 3 rectangular windows with reeded
surrounds to first floor set beneath a projecting eaves band. Shaped
kneelers, gable copings, banded end stacks. Right return: two windows to
each floor in moulded architraves, those to ground floor very tall, those
to first floor the same height as those on the main facade. Projecting
band at eaves level; a semicircular blind window in projecting reeded
surround to apex of gable. The Tuscan columns and gable architraves are
probably details reused from the original house, contemporary with the
Manor House (q.v.) and retained when the house was rebuilt or altered in
c1793, the date of the barn to the south (q.v.) Similar Venetian windows
of c1770 remain unaltered at the Old Vicarage, Arncliffe. (q.v. Arncliffe
