The projecting 2-storey corbelled out gabled porch has rusticated ashlar jambs and moulded impost blocks supporting an ashlar arch with keystone and 2 prominent voussoirs, plus an iron gate. Flat moulded hood above. The 1st floor has a pair of stone cross mullion windows, now blocked and containing 2 glazing bar casement windows. A band runs above. To west a single storey C18 projecting rendered bay with a single 24-pane glazing bar sash and a parapet over. The flanking outer bays each have single blocked stone cross mullion windows, that to west with inserted 30-pane glazing bar sash window. Above to east single blocked stone cross casement and to west 2 similar windows each with 2 wooden casements in the lower lights. East gable wall has single stone cross mullion window to each floor. West gable wall rebuilt with single 2-light glazing bar sliding sash and above in brick gable a single 2-light sliding sash. Rear wall has large coursed rubble and brick stack with 4 diagonal brick shafts.There is a later 2 storey brick extension to the rear with off-centre doorway with 4 panel door, to left single 2-light sliding sash and to right 15-pane sash. Above a single light and a 2-light sliding sash. INTERIOR: 2 moulded cross beams with elaborate moulded stops. 3 ashlar fireplaces with 4-centred arch surrounds, and a single chamfered fire surround. Stick baluster staircase with turned newel, 2 panel C17 doors, 6-panel late C18 doors with original locks and some 4-panel early C19 doors. Early C17 roof structure survives. HISTORY: this house may have been built as a hunting lodge for George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, possibly by Robert Smythson, though recent dendro dating of the surviving beams and roof trusses has dated them to 1637. The house was probably intended to be 3 full storeys when designed, but the top floor was probably never completed. The house became a farmhouse in the early C19 when the interior was largely re-modelled.
