Two storeys, west wing with attic. Rubble, partly brick - C19 replica of half
timbering to east face of west wing. Stone tile roof, hipped to right. Squat
modern chimneys. South front, gable of west wing projects to left, a 2-light
window over door and three 3 light windows, modern leaded casements with modern
wooden lintels. West wing gable has 2 and 3 light oak mullion windows, some
original. Rear of west wing retains close studded timber framing with herring
bone brick infill, apparently late C16; ogee bracing; ground floor rubble.
Catslide to rear of 'east' wing. Bread oven projection to east.
Interior: Jacobean stairs with turned balusters and some contemporary panelling
in hall. Fine stud and plank partition to stair hall. East side has a fireplace
with bread oven.
On first floor of west wing are puzzling features relating presumably to a late
C16 timber-framed house: cf lobby with low Tudor arch doorway.
