GV II*

House, formerly detached. Apparently 1770. Local stone cut and squared, with Ham stone dressings; double Roman clay tile roof behind parapet between coped gables; brick end chimney stacks. Two storeys, 7 bays. Sash windows of 12 panes in architraved surrounds, that to centre upper bay having segmental arched head; continuous label over ground floor windows and central open stone portico, which has Doric columns on short plinths carrying moulded flat stone hood; simple lead rainwater downpipes and stackheads to each side, and simple moulding to plain parapet. VCH states "said to have been built in 1770" - this could well be a re-modelling. Interior not seen. (VCH, Volume III, 1974).
