A small C17 barn converted into a two storey house in the 1890s by H Avray Tipping and his architect Eric Francis. The oak mullioned windows are a characteristic feature of their work.
A barn built of roughly coursed local rubble with a pantile roof. The entrance (courtyard) elevation is in four bays of two storeys. From the left, a plain doorway with partly glazed door under an oak lintel with a 3-light oak framed mullioned leaded lattice casement window above; 5-light window as before with oak cill and lintel, one on either floor but having slightly different glazing patterns; plain doorway with partly glazed door under stone lintel; 3-light casement window on each floor as before. All these openings can be seen to have been introduced into the existing wall. Plain roof with external stack on the right gable and a central one in bay two. Gable end with 2-light windows. The street elevation retains the central cart doors which are the only real visual evidence of this building's agricultural origins. This has a 5-light mullioned window above and below, small lean-to extension to right.
Interior not available at the time of resurvey.
Included as a sensitive barn conversion by Arts and Crafts architects H Avray Tipping and Eric Francis, and for its group value with the adjacent Mathern Palace.
