The original house extended further west but was burned down. The present
west wing which forms a T portion to the east wing, was built by H Harcourt
in 1778 and has this date and the initials H. H. and M. H. on it on date

and 9 windows and is faced with grey headers on an ashlar base with window
dressings, quoins and vertical strips of red brick. Stringcourse of red
brick and grey headers. Wooden modillion eaves cornice. Tiled roof. Bay

Doric columns on plinths, triglyph frieze, pediment, semi-circular fanight
and double doors of 8 moulded and fielded panels. Glazing bars intact except

glass. The north and south fronts of this wing are of red brick and grey
headers alternately and have 3 windows each. The east wing contains C17
panelling and a staircase of 1620 circa with ball finials to the newels.
