INTERIOR: Mustow House: cellar below rear with plastered walls, part vaulted. Entrance hall with boxed-in beams, panelled walls and an open C16 fireplace with stone jambs and a plain cambered timber lintel. Floor paved with purpose-designed C19 encaustic tiles: a central motif with a rayed head of Ceres flanked by 4 Greek heads in profile and surrounded by a wealth of Classical ornamentation. To the right of the entrance hall, a parlour with bolection-moulded panels and dado, panelled cornice and boxed-in main beam. A fine mid-C17 open well stair and balustrade with dumb-bell balusters, square newel posts with moulded heads, moulded handrails and closed strings. Above the stair, the ceiling has

Mustow Corner House contains one ground storey room with bolection-moulded panelling, dado and fireplace surround. During restoration in the 1980s the original timber front wall was uncovered and is still in situ. No other timbers visible. The house was extended westwards in the early C19 at the same time that the top storey was added; C18 prints show it as a 2-storey building with a row of dormer windows and the entrance door not central to the front.
