II*

Large country house. c1680, considerably rebuilt with new front
c1730 for William Mills; mid C18 and 1778 refitting of interior.
Coursed rubble and ashlar limestone; ashlar chimneys; stone and
Welsh slate roofs. Central 3-storey block with 2-storey side
wings; extensive cellars. Two-storey with attic rear range.
Front: fenestration 2:3:2, all 12-pane sashes, those to central
part are round arched with plain architraves having keystones and
imposts, keystones to ground and middle floors linking with plain
band above. Central doorway with rusticated oval arch, double
glazed doors having fanlight with Gothick glazing. Short lengths
of pulvinated frieze support open pedimented Ionic porch. Sashes
to outer parts of facade are square headed, keystones and bands as
to centre. Plain recesses to attic. Modillion eaves cornice to
central part crowned by 2 large griffins. Lion to each lower
section of parapet, ends of facade terminated by giant corner
pilasters, each with urn finial. Flat-fronted mullions to 2-light
cellar casements in plinth. Ends: scattered sash fenestration
including central round arched stair sash to west end. C20
conservatory porch to west end. Rear: mixed mullioned
fenestration, much restored except for ovolo moulded upper floor 2-
light casement. Two gabled roof dormers. Gable end chimneys with
entablature tops.
Interior: fine dog-leg staircase has fluted balusters, columnar
newels, fine carved string brackets, panelled dado having matching
fluted pilasters. Date panel on staircase: 'T.H.M. MDCCLXXVIII'.
Main hall has Kent-style mid C18 chimneypiece. The deceptively
large facade to an otherwise modestly-sized house gives the effect
of an eye-catcher, especially as the house overlooks a small
valley.
