Description

The current house is an early 17th century rebuild of a 16th century house. It was divided in the 18th century and was restored in the 19th century. The house is situated on Minster Yard, north-east of York Minster. The dining room has a fireplace with a cast iron grate, Ionic pilasters and a large frieze with an open pediment and relief vase in the centre. Above is an overmantle with a swan-necked pediment and landscape painting.

The house is now cared for by the National Trust.
