Farmhouse, C17 with C19 western additions. Main range of ashlar with
rubber side-walls. Western ranges of rubble, flint and brick. Main range
has slated roof with stone copings and kneelers and end brick stacks.

cross-passage with rear stair tower. Main facade symmetrical, of 2 storeys,
5 ground floor bays and 3 upper floor bays. Ground floor has 4-light,
hollow chamfered stone-mullioned windows with returned labels, that to the
left being blocked. Above are 2 similar 4-light windows flanking a central
2-light window with a stone apron. Windows contain wrought-iron casements
with leaded-lights. Central flat wooden porch on stone Ionic columns,
probably an C18 addition. 4-panel door. Rear ranges have mainly C20 metal

Internal features (from RCHM): Various rooms have panelled dadoes and
moulded cornices. Some original doorways and fireplaces. Stair tower
has original newel-post with inserted C18 stairs having turned balusters
and moulded handrail. Main fireplaces are on western lateral wall, an
unusual position in relation to the gable stacks. (RCHM, Dorset, vol. III,
