A fine stuccoed building with C18 external features possibly incorporating
an earlier core. It stands on high ground to the north of the village
next to the Church of St Mary the Virgin. Two storeys and attics. The
south front is said to have been added in the early part of the C19 comprising
splayed bay fronted side wings each of 3 window range and a sub-basement,
and a central hexastyle Tuscan portico with plain columns and a pediment
with an oval light with radial glazing bars in the tympanum. The outer
bays of the portico are blocked, each with one window range. The north
front has 1:6:1 window range and the east front has 8 window range.
All the windows are double-hung sashes with glazing bars. The centre
part of the north front, of 4 window range and a central niche with figure,
breaks forward slightly and is pedimented with a carved coat of arms
in the tympanum, the outer windows are separated by pilasters. The doorway
was added by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1933-34, when he made some alterations
and additions to the house. The interior has a fine C18 staircase.
