stone kneelers and ball finials to gables. Cruciform plan with late
C19 addition (re-roofed in late C20) in angle between right and rear
gables. 2 storeys and attics, moulded eaves cornice; cellars beneath
chamfered plinth; mullioned windows to cellar with cross-windows to
front and rear gables; right gable has 3-light mullioned and transomed
windows to ground and first floors and cross-window to attic; front
gable: double-chamfered cross-windows to left and right of door on
both floors with one in centre to attic; four-centred arched -doorway,
approached by flight of 5 steps, has enriched spandrels and moulded
label, nail-studded door with scrolled strap hinges, original knocker
and lock; 2-storey canted bay to left gable with 7-light mullioned and
transomed windows on each floor probably a later C17 addition; brick
segmental-headed doorway to rear gable (left side) and flat-headed
doorway to left gable (rear side), latter converted from mullioned
window lighting cellar; prominent central ridge stack with 10 attached
octagonal brick shafts now roughcast. C19 addition has apparently
C17 mullioned and cross-windows, presumably moved out from rear and right
gables when addition was built. Interior: mid-C17 oak rectangular
panelling in main ground- and first-floor rooms, some with decorative
carving; moulded stone fireplace with four-centred arch to ground-floor
room of left gable, fireplace to other side of stack (in centre of
house) infilled but has richly carved Jacobean overmantel with grotesque
human figures; date "D/RM/1656" on overmantel to fireplace in main
first-floor room; open-well staircase rising from ground floor to attic
