Large irregular-shaped house of various periods. The main front facing North
East was built by William White in the early C17, but it contains some older

Three gables overhanging on carved bressummers and brackets with carved bargeboards

C18 doorway with pilasters and shell hood. Bay above it of two tiers of 6-lights.
