House. Probably late Medieval, but largely rebuilt in the C17. Red brick in mainly random bond, platband at rear; timber-framed cross-wing largely rebuilt in brick. Clay plain tile roof with gabled ends. Brick axial and gable-end stacks. PLAN: The cross-wing, at the left [NW] end, is all that survives of a Medieval house, the hall of which has been demolished. The main brick range is of 3-room plan with an axial stack between the centre and right hand rooms [probably originally with a lobby entrance] and a small inner room on the left [now an entrance and stair hall with a porch at the front in the angle with the cross-wing]. The cross-wing has a stack and ovens on the front gable-end and it has been extended at the rear in the late C20. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window main range with cross-wing on left with single-storey lean-to on front and C20 gabled porch in the angle. C20 1, 2 and 3-light casements, those on ground floor in widened cambered arch openings. C20 glazed door to right of centre. Large brick diagonal raking buttresses on lower right hand end. At rear circa C18 2-light casements on first floor with leaded panes, extended gable-end of cross-wing on right with C20 porch in the angle. INTERIOR: Larger right hand room has chamfered axial beam with ogee stops at one end, exposed joists and large brick fireplace with chamfered timber lintel with straight-cut stops. Smaller central room has chamfered axial beam with hollow step stops and large rebuilt brick fireplace with long hollow step stops. Timber-framed wall between centre and small left room [now hall] which also has chamfered axial beam. Cross-wing has large chamfered cross beam with straight-cut stops, one beam replaced and some remaining broad joists; fireplace largely rebuilt. Roof: The main range has an intact C17 queen-post and clasped purlin roof structure with curved wind-braces; common rafter couples, some of which are smoke-blackened and re-used from former open hall. The cross-wing was re-roofed in the C17 with side purlins and common rafter couples.
