History

Originally probably late C17 and remodelled early C19, the house was gutted by fire in 1871 and subsequently rebuilt by a Mr.Edward Blythell, as recorded on an inscription plaque in the hall.

Exterior

2-storey rendered stone house under a medium-pitched slate roof. 5-bay near-symmetrical front with central round-arched entrance. Painted stucco surround with slightly projecting key. Stopped-chamfered doorcase, slightly recessed, with simple Y-tracery fan and plain 4-panelled door. Flanking near- flush sash windows of 16 panes to ground and 12 panes to first floors, the former with gently cambered heads and all with projecting stone cills. Plain end-chimneys of stock brick and a similar central one. Simple decorative chimney-pots. To the R a projecting end stack, now reduced and roofed as before. To the rear a gabled cross-wing at R, contemporary with the 1871
rebuilding. Rendered stack and modern windows.

Stepped-down from this a further, single-storey extension, roofed as before with outshuts to R and rear. Modern garage doors with modern door to L. A further modern cross-wing abuts this to the L.

Interior

Wide inglenook with chamfered bressummer and C19 bread-oven to ground floor room at R.
