G.V. II*

House; C17 incorporating some reused C15 work with substantial C19 alterations. Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar dressings, some ashlar, stone coped gables with moulded stack, one moulded ridge stack, one large stepped external stack to rear; collyweston slate roof, lower roof with Pantiles. 4 bay front with to left an end gabled bay, 2 storey with garrets and remaining 3 bays single storey with attics. A further later C19 2 storey 2 bay extension to right. Off centre main C19 oak door under C19 4 centre arch with hood mould. Above door, to one side, a sundial. To left single bay gabled wing, with C19 3 light stone mullioned casements with pointed heads, under hood mould. To 1st floor a reused C15 canted oriel window of 6 lights with stone mullions and cusped tracery. The base has 4 moulded courses with stone ornament between of roses, leaves and lozenges. The oriel has a hood mould, and to either side of its stone roof a string course which stops short of the end walls. This part of the wall is in ashlar and it is thought that the oriel has been brought from elsewhere and inserted in C19. Above oriel, in gable, is a C19 single light with shaped stone lintel. To the right of the oriel is a carved corbel in the figure of an angel. The 2 bays to the right of the door consist of a canted C19 ashlar bay of 3 front lights and single side lights, in Tudor style with pointed heads and hood moulds and a C20 3 light copy with plain lintel over. Above are 2 through eaves stone gabled dormers containing C19 3 light windows with pointed heads, the central light being taller, and stepped hood moulds over. The later 2 bay extension has a C17 oak door with stone surround and cornice and 2 C20 3 light windows. Interior has a reused C17 staircase with barley twist balusters, rather widely spaced and with C15 applied carved figures to newel posts. The landing string is a carved panel with C17 ornamentation. The fireplace in the cross wing is a wide shallow arched C16/17 moulded stone surround which appears to have been cut down, as it stands very low. The house has many reused items in its interior which may date from a previous occupant of the house known to be a collector of architectural fragments.
