Farmhouse, now part of motel. Earlier C17, altered and now
remodelled internally; the large C20 extensions are not of
special architectural interest. Coursed squared sandstone
rubble with quoins, slate roof.
Formerly T-plan formed by one-unit main range on east-west
axis with 2-unit cross-wing at east end and projecting
addition at west end. 2 storeys, 1:1:1 windows; gabled porch
in angle with west wing, with Tudor-arched lintel; to the
right of this, one long formerly-mullioned window on each
floor (probably formerly 5 and 7 lights respectively), both
with double-chamfered surrounds and cavetto-moulded hoodmoulds
(but the head and hoodmould of the upper window repaired in
concrete); similar windows in front wall of wing to right,
which now has a carried-down roof.
Right-hand return wall has external chimney stack, one 2-light
mullioned window on each floor in front of this, and in the
portion to the rear (now inside C20 additions) a 3-light
mullioned window with hoodmould and a corbelled chimney above
this. Left wing has later openings.
INTERIOR: a wide segmental-arched fireplace in the rear wall
(now part of bar); to the left of this, a doorway leading from
remains of a former north porch, which consists of a
segmental-arched doorway with moulded jamb and impost on the
west side; in the east wing, a pair of large beams with
quadruple moulding of late C16 or early C17 type, and a
Tudor-arched parlour fireplace; upper floor said to have
similar beams and fireplace. Forms group with gate piers
approx 100m south-west (qv).
