floor at north gable end (south gable end probably similar), and two rows of
panels above and below jetty, short straight braces across upper corners and

apex. North front elevation: hall part has three 3-light casements on the
first floor and, to the right, a C19 gabled balustered timber-framed porch

and, flanking the C20 fireplace two pointed-arched cupboards with moulded
architraves, keyblocks and panelled doors. The solar has a cross-beamed
ceiling to each bay, the beams retain their painted decoration. A C19 coach
house and stable wing adjoins the solar and a C19 tank room, boiler room and
kennels adjoin the service wing. The house stands on a moated site; it was
once part of the Bearcroft Estate and may have been the Dower House.
