Farmhouse. Early C17, with late C19 exterior. 2 storeys and attics to main
range; 1½ storeys to rear: L-shaped form. Timber-framed. The front range is
faced in red brick on the ground floor and rendered above; the rear is fully
encased in brick. Plaintiled roofs with ornamental ridge tiles. One end
chimney-stack, and another on the rear wall. 2 gabled dormers with ornate
pierced and fluted bargeboards and spike finials; similar bargeboards to the 2
gable ends. 4 windows in heavy mullion-and-transome style to the first floor:
2 4-light and 2 2-light, and 3 similar windows to the ground floor, 2 of 4
lights and one of 3 lights. A studded entrance door with applied pilaster
strips, under an ornate porch roof with bargeboards and Gothic brackets. This
front range has a basic 3-cell plan, modified by early and later C19
alterations; most of the timber frame is covered, but the ground floor room at
the west end has an ovolo-moulded main beam, and the central room 2 boxed-in
beams and an original fireplace with Tudor arch, plastered to simulate stone.
The rear range has diamond-leaded panes to casement windows, some of the
frames and panes C17, repaired and reset when the house was encased in brick.
The interior, in 3 bays, has plain main beams only exposed. A C19 lean-to
along its west side. The farm was formerly the grange to Flixton Hall, and
the exterior is typical of the style of estate house favoured by the Adair
family.
