(Formerly Listed as:


House. Early C19. Red brick in Flemish bond, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles. Rectangular plan facing E, with a
stack in each gable wall, and an original catslide to the
rear, with a stack at the left end of it. C20 conservatory to
left. Ground floor, 2 sashes of 2+2 lights in original
apertures with flat arches of gauged brick. First floor, 2
similar sashes without flat arches. Central door with 4
boarded flush panels and 3 fretted lights at top; moulded flat
canopy on profiled brackets. Symmetrical elevation.
Modillioned eaves cornice. A brick to left of the front door
is inscribed `Wm. - 1823', with a stone in the position of the
missing initial, possibly intended to mean William Stone. In
each gable end a line of black headers follows the front pitch
of the roof, and the equivalent pitch at the rear. All
re-pointed with lime mortar c1986.
INTERIOR: each ground-floor front room has a chamfered axial
beam of pine. Both ground-floor front windows have double sash
shutters, which are rare survivals. The left room has a plain
white marble fireplace, the right has a fireplace of black and
green marble, and a Victorian cast-iron grate. Original stair,
some stick balusters missing from lower flight. All internal
doors are 4-panel, except at the rear of the first-floor right
front room, which has a pair of 3-panel pine doors with a
draw-bar, formerly overlooking a lower room to the rear (now a
corridor), a rare feature.
