C15, C16, C18, late C19. A house of many parts and periods. East wing:
formerly an open roofed hall mainly C15, a north-south range of 2 storeys, the
southern part restored and integrated with the house. Red tile roof, missing
above the ruined northern section. Walling is in malmstone, mixed with flint
and in part roughly rendered, with stone dressings, a diagonal stepped buttress
at the south-east corner and a fragment of a buttress at the north-west. There
are single and coupled lights, with cusped heads, within rectangular frames with
indented spandrels, stone jambs and mullions: these have diagonal leaded lights
under the roofed part. A C15 doorway at the north end and 2 similar doorways
on the west side, all with pointed arches. The 'Gothick' restoration features
include a pointed arched doorway at the south side and next to it a 3-light
wooden window above a 3-light mullioned and transomed window both with pointed
lights. An attached chimney breast has a later top, with stone dressings, end-
ing in coupled brick octagonal Tudor-style flues, another stack is missing its
top. The 2-storeyed Tudor brick porch projects at the west end, being linked
to the east wing by the rear part of the C18 work. The front has a gable above
a (restored) brick oriel, a small recessed panel, and a 4-centred arch set
within a rectangular frame. The two outer corners have octagonal buttresses
with small pointed tops, a moulding at the top and intermediately, and a high
plinth. The red tile roof merges into the later part: the walls are red brick
English bond. South front: C18. A symmetrical facade of 2 storeys and attic,
7 windows. Slate roof. Large tapering chimney stacks to each end gable, 4 flat
roofed dormers with casements, simple moulded cornices, fully-moulded modillion
cornice, returned at ends. Red brick walling, Flemish bond, with rubbed flat
arches, narrow 1st floor band, stone cills, high plinth. Sashes in exposed
frames. Central French door with semicircular fanlight above. The south-east
corner of the building is a 2 storeyed block of the late C19, with tile-hung
upper walls, a 2 storeyed bay with coupled sashes and narrow side windows, on
the east elevation a projecting bay on brackets (with a hipped roof) above a
ground-floor sash window. The rear part of the main block has a 3-gabled form
and more modern units extend northwards from 2 of them,one (with hipped roof)
linking to the east wing, the other a short gabled wing on the west side
replacing a larger Victorian wing demolished recently.
