History

Small domestic building, possibly originally a steward's house. Despite heavy alteration, the evidence provided by primary stopped-chamfered beams and lintels suggest an early C17 origin. The building has 2 re-used roof trusses of arch-braced collar form. These are finely chamfered and double-pegged, and have (unusually) decorative bracing in the form of a saltire cross above the collar. The trusses appear to be of early Tudor date and may have been re-used from the storeyed kitchen wing added to the main house in the early C16.

Exterior

Small rectangular domestic building of limestone rubble construction with pitched C20 slate roof; squat C19 brick chimney to the NE. Of 2 storeys, the entrance is on the SE gable end and has a modern part-glazed door. Two-light C19 casement window to the garden side with 4-pane sections and a segmental head; modern small-pane window above with tilting upper section. The NE side has a 3-light casement window, as before, to the first floor and a modern open carport adjoining to the ground floor. Tall arched window to the SE gable, with small-pane glazing and brick voussoirs. A modern single-storey, pitched-roofed addition adjoins to the ground floor.

Interior

Interior heavily modernised, though with stopped-chamfered beams and window lintel to the ground floor. The roof has 2 re-used early C16 trusses. These are arch-braced collar trusses with saltire cross decoration above the collar. This, and the double-pegged construction, are unusual.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as an important ancilliary building at Foxhall, retaining fine resited C16 roof trusses probably reused from the main house.
