House, latterly vicarage. Early and mid-C17 with mid-to late C19 addition and probably C20 alterations. Dressed grey Grinshill sandstone, partly cement rendered (lined as ashlar); timber framed with painted brick nogging on high painted dressed sandstone plinth; plain tile roof. Framing: square panels (2 from sole plate to wall plate) with long straight tension braces. L-plan. 2 storeys and 2 storeys and attic. Chamfered plinth and coped parapeted gables; 2 integral brick end stacks at rear of main block. 3-window front; 4-light double-chamfered mullioned and transomed stone windows; pair of large gables with 2-light double chamfered mullioned stone attic windows. Rendered central 2 storey gabled porch, probably altered in C20 with first-floor 2-light wooden casement and ground-floor keyed segmental arch with 6-panelled door and small window set back behind. Painted sundial with wrought- iron gnomon to left of first-floor left-hand window. Blocked attic window in left-hand return front. C19 two-storey addition set back to left with polygonal end, hipped roof, plinth, coved cornice brick stack at rear, and leaded one-light wooden cross window with double-chamfered reveals on each floor. Right-hand return front: 2-light double-chamfered mullioned attic window and 3-light double-chamfered stone mullioned and transomed windows to left on ground and first floors. Rear: C20 raking dormer and 2-light double-chamfered stone mullioned ground-floor window to left at rear Mid-C17 timber framed rear wing with C20 lean-to porch in angle. Interior not inspected but likely to be of interest. The garden wall at the front (q.v.) is dated 1694 which is possibly the date of part of the house though Pevsner quotes the date as 1624 which seems more likely. B.o.E. p. 135.
