Farmhouse, now house. Late C16, north front re-faced mid-C18, with
later additions and alterations. Timber framed on rendered plinth
with plaster infill (roughcast brick north front), plain tile roofs.
Originally an L-plan; hall of 3 framed bays with 2-bay cross-wing
projecting to west, the north side of which was re-built in brick in
C18; late C19 gabled brick addition and low flat-roofed late C20
extension in angle between. 2 storeys and attics; framing: much
renewed in late C20, three irregular square and rectangular panels
above girding beam with close-set vertical posts below, long and
short straight tension braces; open gabled 2-storey porch (probably
mid-C17) on east side of hall range also has close-set vertical posts
and a jettied gable on carved corner brackets, splat balusters to
sides; 3-bay north front has late C20 glazing bar sashes replacing
earlier sash windows, those to ground floor in canted bays, linked
by a verandah with a central late C20 French window below; gabled
dormers in roof slope to left and right, dentilled eaves cornice;
red brick ridge stack to hall range with twin diagonal shafts and
moulded capping, prominent external stack to right gable end of north

but likely to be of interest.
