roof. Earlier part comprises a front range with rear wings parallel to
each other. 2 storeys with attic, 5 bays, with 2 drip courses. Windows of
2 lights, rebated and chamfered with mullions. Attic has similar short
windows to bays 2 and 4 only. The door, in the central bay, has a moulded
surround and shaped lintel with no inscription. The gables have copings
with kneelers, and chimneys with weathered offsets. Both return walls have
mullioned windows to the rear wings. Set back to the right is a 2-bay
extension, probably C18th despite having 2-light rebated and chamfered
attic windows. On the 1st floor are sashed windows with glazing bars and
architraves. The ground-floor window is of 3 lights with flat-faced
mullions. The door, in the left-hand bay, has a cyma-moulded surround
under a stone porch with pilasters. Adjoining to the right is a 2-storey
former coach house and stable, now mostly part of the house. At the left
it has a wide moulded doorway with elliptical arch and keystone, now
blocked and containing a smaller door. Above is a window which has an
architrave with round head and keystone. To the right is a modern garage
entrance. At the far right is one bay which has 2-light flat-faced
mullioned windows. Inside, the right-hand front room has a bolection-
moulded stone fireplace. In the left-hand rear wing an open-well stair
rises to the attic and has barley-sugar balusters, moulded handrail, and
square newels with ball finials. The C18th extension has a shouldered
fireplace with moulded cornice mantel, and a pine stair with closed string
and splat balusters. A 1st floor room is lined with raised and fielded
panelling. The stone fireplace is flanked by fluted pilasters and
surmounted by a small swan-necked pediment in stone. The roof over this
part of the house has hardwood king post trusses of C18th type.
