addition, fenestration 2:1:2, all 12-pane sashes in plain openings.
Central doorway with glazed door; Ionic porch with dentil-enriched
cornice. Moulded cornice with blocking course; hipped roof. East
side: blank rubble wall to front range with central parapet
mounted chimney having swept base and moulded cap. Two full gables
to C17 house to right. Small casements to gables, mixed
fenestration below, generally arranged 2 below each gable. One 12-
pane sash and leaded casements to ground floor, 16-pane upper floor
sashes. Two ridge-mounted chimneys. Lower addition to right with

Interior: extremely fine plasterwork in principal rooms of c1780
front range, opposed doorcases having fluted friezes and 6-panel
mahogany doors. Adam style fireplace in dining room faces round
arched recess with medallion. Ceiling plasterwork is more
elaborate and less Adam influenced than that in drawing room, both
room's walls having delicate floral swags. Finest of all is the
hall with 3-centred arch, behind which is open-well curving
staircase with cantilever treads and stick balusters. Height of
stair-hall is emphasised by tall plasterwork panels on curved wall,
interrupted by doorway on axis. Plaster decoration is continued to

in hall below. Stair lit by small cupola. Principal bedroom has
oval arched bed recess. C17 part of house retains timber open
well staircase with moulded handrail and turned balusters. Large
3-centred arched doorway to cellar. Various decorative stops to
beam chamfers. Extended collar roof construction. Small house to
north (q.v.) and coach house with stables (q.v.).
