The description shall be amended to read

Country house. Probably early C16 rear, enlarged to north c1600. Rear appears
to be stone with roughcast face, originally possibly timber framed, remainder
in brick-faced rubble stone. Rear roof of plain tiles, with stone slates to front
gables, and some concrete tiles in central valley. Two very large brick stacks
in valley, possibly lateral stacks to early range, and reduced in height by about
2.5m at time of survey (November 1985). Double range; north (c1600) range with
central entrance hall entered through porch, with high status rooms to both main
floors, and bedroom accommodation to upper half storey. Medieval range much altered
by insertion of stair to the north range, the fireplaces and the loss of its
westernmost bays, with five small gables to north front and central linking section
of roof between gables and rear ridge. Two storeys and attic. Symmetrical front
of 5 windows, 2-light mullions to attic, mullions and transoms below, with mullions
and transoms all in rendered brick imitating stone. Two-brick plain strings between
floors and above attic windows which are all blocked. Remaining windows all blocked
to right of central 2-storey porch, except for additional single light immediately
adjoining upper storey of porch. Far left-hand first floor window blocked. Porch
has square corner piers, shallow gable, moulded 2-brick cornice, and brick plinth,
two-light mullion to front of upper storey, and blocked single lights to each floor
in returns. Round archway with large dropped keystone and voussoir to each side
and projecting imposts, also rendered brick, and similar inner doorway without
imposts and unevenly shaped to left, with original plank door with elaborate strap
hinges. Wooden seats on each side of porch. South elevation in roughcast with
planted stone plinth, with mostly altered fenestration except for small 2-light
mullion on stair. West side has coped gable ends, stepped to front range, leaded
4-light mullion and transom to each on first floor with 2-brick string above and
below, and 2 long 4-light mullions on ground floor. Blocked central first floor
single light. Attics have blocked 2-light mullion to rear range and 2-light mullion
and transom with additional lower side lights, also blocked. East side has 4-light
mullion on front range with some probably original latticing and small blocked
2-light to left at lower level, 2 arched-light mullion to rear range. Small C19
single storey brick kitchen and wash house with tile roof and canopy attached on
this side. Interior: part of original C16 roof remains to rear below flattened
roof pitch with arch braced collar trusses and 4 pairs of arched wind braces.
Front roof appears originally to have been built for pitched roof with cambered
collar beam trusses, altered during construction to form sleeping accommodation.
All rooms on first floor have ovolo moulded and stopped door surrounds with original
plank doors and iron latches and hinges. Rear range has wide flat-chamfered beams
and room to left also has original moulded plaster ceiling and coving, and panel
over fireplace. Similar large beams to ground floor of this range and timber-framed
partition wall between room to left with two fireplaces, one large one to the north
wall, another with hollow chamfered stone surround, the opening blocked with brick-
work, and original framed open well stair with turned balusters and moulded handy
and 4 hollowed out newel posts retained on flight up to attic. Stone flag floors
on ground floor left. Timber pointed arch plank door and surround between ranges.
Wall and railings to north of house, approximately 20m in length: brick plinth
with shaped coping as base for flat iron railings in clam shell pattern with
panelled iron uprights with pyramidal tops, one upright to left and 3 to right
of square gatepiers with brick bases and stone caps with panelled sides and inset
roundel, carved with foliage on north side and plain to south. Piers opposite
porch have moulded cornices much eroded to right, and end. similar piers have no
cornice. This house is a remote and almost unaltered example of an Elizabethan
house said to have been used by the Lords Berkeley when catching salmon, and even
visited by Queen Elizabeth. As such it could rank with other small "prodigy"
houses.
