Farmhouse, now house. Late C16 and early C17 with later additions and
alterations. Timber framed with rendered infill and plinth; machine
tile roof. Hall range in 2 unequal framed bays with slightly later
2-bay gabled cross-wing projecting to right; hall range apparently formerly
extended further to left but truncated and rebuilt to left of stack
late C20. One storey and attic. Framing: square and rectangular panels,
3 from cill to wall-plate with short straight tension braces and V-
struts from collars to cross-wing; prominent gabled jettied full dormer
to hall range has diagonal struts, cusped quatrefoil above bressumer
and V-struts from collar. Irregular fenestration; late C20 leaded mullion
windows and casements said to be in imitation of original windows, one
of 5 lights to dormer with 2 casements directly below and another casement
to far right to hall range; gable of cross-wing has one window on each
floor. Mullioned and transomed window to rear dormer of hall range
probably partly original but much restored. Entrance through late C20
gabled rendered porch to left of hall range with late C20 French window
to left wall of cross-wing. Red brick ridge stack to left of hall range
and integrall lateral stack with dentilled band to right wall of cross-
wing. C20 gabled porch to back wall of hall range has datestone "H/RS/
1702" said formerly to have been in the back wall and possibly referring
to the cladding or rebuilding of that wall (now rendered) in brick.
Interior: timber frame exposed throughout with wattle and daub infill
visible to several panels; ground-floor rooms have moulded and chamfered
ceiling beams and heavy joists; rebuilt red brick fireplaces with segmental
arches; plank and muntin doors throughout. Single-purlin collar and
tie beam roofs to both hall range and cross-wing have exposed trusses
and straight windbraces. The house stands within a well-preserved but
now dry square-shaped moat.
