Double pile. Two storeys, 3 bays; pointed arch head 2-light casements, central square headed
entrance, rectangular light, half glazed door with pointed arch glazing. Two bay returns.
Said to contain king post roof trusses similar to those at Kingston Farmhouse (q.v). The
pointed arch heads were added in the late 1970s to the existing many paned 2-light casements.

of Raddington had been incorporated into Chipstable in 1933 (VCH Somerset, V0l V 1985).
