House. Dated 1593. Timber-framed on sandstone plinth, with plaster infill
panels, and some brick repair work painted to imitate timber-framing; plain-tile
roof; brick ridge stacks. 4-bay main range aligned north-south facing west, with
a 2-bay northern cross-wing. 2 storeys and gable-lit attic. 1:2:1:1 window

triangular braces or brackets in the upper corners; the first floor has
herringbone pattern bracing and a fleur-de-lys motif carved on the centre stud.
The gable has quadrant bracing. Both upper floors are jettied; the lower
bressumer is ogee-moulded and the upper has an ovolo-moulding. C16 eight-light
windows projecting forward on bracketed sills, with leaded panes and
ogee-moulded mullions and transoms; 4-pane casement to attic, probably C19. The
main range displays a framing pattern similar to that of the cross-wing; large
casements, probably early C20; single-storey lean-to extension in the re-entrant
angle with the wing. 2-storey gabled porch to centre with sandstone ground
storey. A Tudor-arched entrance has an ogee and ovolo-moulded surround, panelled
spandrels, and a fluted frieze. It is flanked by a pair of pilaster strips with
fleur-de-lys directly above the entrance. The roof truss has tenoned purlins and
the gable is decorated with quatrefoil pattern framing, and contains a panel
inscribed "A.D. MDXCIII". C16 first floor window similar to those of the wing
but with ovolo-moulded mullions and transoms. Inside is a C16 battened door with
moulded vertical ribs and strap hinges. The left hand return of the cross-wing
retains 2 wood mullioned windows. Interior: the main entrance gives access to a
stone vaulted cross passage between the backs of 2 fireplaces. The kitchen
fireplace to the south is plain but the massive fireplace in the main room has a
Tudor arch and a frieze with shallow pilasters carved with fleur-de-lys above
fluting; a moulded shelf breaks forward over each pilaster; in the centre above
the shelf is carved treble rose. This room also has a moulded and stopped
ceiling beam. The north wing was originally divided into 2 rooms, a large one to
the front and a small room to the rear. The former has ovolo and ogee-moulded
ceiling beams. On the first floor are a stone fireplace with arched head and
ceiling beams with wide chamfers. The roof over the north wing has straight wind
braces.
