ST 04SE 1/25 12.6. 5O

Probably a late mediaeval house which appears to have been largely rebuilt in the early
C17 with further alterations in the late C17/early C18. Originally the seat of the
Wyndham family.
Roughcast render with dressed stone quoins. Ripped slate roofs, ridge tiles, brick
chimney stacks. Two-storeys plus attics, irregular L-shaped plan. Main front facing
south-west in 2 sections. Right-hand side, 3 windows at first floor, one C16 3-light
stone mullioned casement window with leaded lights and hood mould, 2 late C17 mullion
and transom cross windows, casements with lead glazing. Below these windows at ground
floor 2 C18 windows, sashes with glazing bars and exposed frames. To the left a C17
projecting gabled porch, semi-circular stone arch with moulded arch rings and imposts.
The left-hand section of the front breaks forward and has two 3-light casement windows
with leaded lights. The interior has been much altered, but rear bedroom retains a
plaster ceiling with design of thin moulded ribs in a geometric pattern with Tudor
roses and thistles, late C17 fireplace with bolection moulding. Similar larger
fireplace in ground floor front room.
