House. Early C17 core, with late Victorian enlargements by Herbert Groom.
Timber-framed, encased in red brick, mainly C19, but with some sections of
Tudor brick; the central range is jettied and tile-hung on the upper floor;
hipped plaintiled roofs. 2 storeys; complex plan. 8 chimney-stacks, some
internal, some set externally on side walls, in several variants of
traditional style: 3, on high shaped bases, have octagonal shafts and spurred
caps, the others have square shafts, some set diagonally, and attached
corbelled caps. Various 4- and 5-light casement windows, with arched heads to
lights and leaded panes in intersecting hexagonals and diamonds; some of the
ground-floor windows have transomes, and there is one square bay window. 2-
storey projecting porch, with a 5-light upper window and ai small 2-light
diamond-leaded fixed window on each side of the doorway. Wide segmental arch
to doorway, with triangular pediment and dentil cornice above, continued as a
hood-mould over the windows. Ledged and battened door with 2 leaves, and
applied pilaster strips. Linked to the north side of the house is a small 2-
storey early C20 circular tower by Louis Sarel (see also Spexhall Manor and
Fairstead Farmhouse, Spexhall) with a conical plaintiled roof surmounted by a
square open belfry containing one bell; both storeys have single-light fixed
windows with diamond-leaded panes. Early C20 timbered and panelled interior:
2 bays of the original C17 house, with plain exposed ceiling-joists are
visible. The ground floor windows on the porch and the dentil details
probably also be Sarel.
