Farmhouse. C17; remodelled and extended in circa late C18 or early C19. Timber-framed, encased in red brick, with modillion eaves and a plain tile roof with gabled ends. Brick gable-end and axial stacks. The house has an L-shaped plan with a main, 2-storey range and rear (west) wing and later additions including C19 infill to the north-west and to the north end. There is considerable evidence of the C17 house: timber framing is visible to the west wall of the main range on the exterior and to the interior where this range abuts the rear wing; both the north end stack and the axial stack between main range and wing are of seventeenth century brick. Many of the original roof timbers are intact to the main range, those to the north end may have been re-used; the central truss is pegged and has queen posts and wattle and daub infill. There is one level of roughly-chamfered purlins. Seventeenth-century interior features include; to the south part of the main range the ground and first-floor rooms have deeply chamfered beams with pyramidal stops, the upper room also has chamfered rafters; to the north end of this range is the remains of an large fireplace, now blocked. Towards the end of the eighteenth century the rear wing was given a two storey porch with double, French doors and fanlight; arched recesses painted in imitation of sash windows were added to either side. Much of the joinery dates from c1780-1820, including the 6-fielded-panel (east) exterior and interior doors; 10/10 sashes with panelled shutters and fluted architraves to doors and windows; arches to French doors (with panelled shutters) in the rear wing to ground floor and to window recess on first floor; the dogleg staircase has stick balusters. A simple Georgian chimneypiece remains to the ground floor of this wing and there are other cast-iron chimneypieces. The house occupies a medieval moated site.
