GV II*

Farmhouse. C17 with early C18 alterations. Coursed squared and dressed stone of ashlar quality; tiled roof; verge parapets with pitched copings; stone side stacks and massive stack to rear of twin diagonally-set shafts. H-plan of classic C17-type entered via parlour wing with farm entry into side of cross-wing. 2 storeys, attic and cellar, front of 2 projecting gables flanking central recess. Finer, C17 gable to left, deep plinth and cavetto strings at floor levels; labelled 3-light chamfered mullioned window to attic over 5-light mullioned and transomed windows to ground and first floors; small 3-light mullioned window visible to cellar; right- hand wing refaced early C18; block mullioned 4-light ground- and first- floor windows; entrance to left side with Tuscan doorcase, the cornice surmounted by ball finials on diamond-panel pedestals; boarded door; centre recess also refaced in C18, with 3-light block mullioned windows, on the first floor placed centrally and the ground offset to left. The rear elevation has a complete C17 front, the south wing having 2 windows to each floor, transomed and mullioned to ground floor, 5 mullioned windows to remainder. Side elevation to north also complete C17, with boarded door into yard. The side-of-cross-wing entry became common in parlour- orientated C17 houses in this area, the hall entry diminished in importance and in this instance (frequent in the locality) non-existent. The house forms part of a complete and little-altered C17-C18 group. Interior: not inspected, but likely to be of interest.
