Country House, now offices. Circa 1863 incorporating earlier C19 house, W wing c1897. By Francis Wigg ( - 1868) as his own country house (Colvin (1978) 887-8). Red brick with stone dressings and steep slate roofs. A picturesquely massed large neo-Gothic country house, in its own park, with entrance court on the E, and main rooms looking E over the Beane Valley. Planned around a lofty stair hall in a square tower with chequered parapet and 2 large gothic windows. W front of 2-storeys and attics, has 2 large gabled wings with tall canted bay windows, and glazed stone gallery between. Offices and stable block at N. A characteristic use of prismatic chamfers in elevations and mullioned sash windows extends to interior, said to be deliberately plain to set off tapestries and pictures. Freestone fireplaces with Caernarvon arches on simple-chamfers transposed to white marble with red lozenge insets in main rooms. 3 cast iron grates in Japanese style by Barnard and Barnard. Stair hall with arcaded stair and landing and patterned polychrome tiled floor, restored c1980 with former stencilled decoration copied for wallpaper. An interesting and idiosyncratic C19 architect's house little altered. (Pevsner (1977) 79).
