Whitecliff Manor 1. 5190 (formerly listed as Whitecliff Farm) SZ 08 SW 1/148 26.6.52 II

2. C17 origin. Purbeck Stone walls. Purbeck Stone roofs. Ashlar stone stacks with moulded string courses and caps. Main range has a stone porch - probably a later addition, with round arched doorway. Ground floor has one 3-light stone mullioned window, two 2-light stone mullioned windows, and one single-light window with arched head. First floor has three 2-light mullioned windows, and one small window, probably originally lighting a stair or closet. All the mullioned windows are renewals. Large buttress at north-east end. Two-storeyed wing at the rear. Part of this appears contemporary with the main range - extended in C18. This wing has modern wood casement windows, some with cast iron diagonal glazing. The wing is continued to form a barn, at a slightly lower level, all in Purbeck Stone. At the west end of the main range is a 2-storeyed section, roofed at right angles to the main range -possibly the surviving portion of an earlier house (RCHM). Interior considerably modernised.

Note: Apart from the attached barn described, the farm buildings are recent, or much altered, and not listable. RCHM Monument 78.
