House. C16 origin, partly remodelled in C18, altered and enlarged in C19. Stone walls. Lower slopes of roof stone slated, upper slopes tiled. Brick stacks. Two storeys and attics. Original building has large central hall, with parlour on east and kitchen on west. Circular stone stair - C16, in square turret at rear of east end of hall. C18 stair tower adjoining this on west (ie in centre of south wall of hall). C19 lean-to additions at rear, mostly recently demolished, leaving two small single-storey blocks, with brick and stone walls, and tiled roofs. Demolition of lean-to has revealed evidence of earlier two-storeyed projecting wing at the rear of the kitchen. Main front (north) wall rebuilt in C18 in ashlar. Symmetrical design. Central 6-panel door and fanlight, with moulded stone jambs and head - apparently re-used C16 work. Ground floor has six double-hung sash windows with glazing bars, in moulded stone surrounds (apparently re-used C16 work), with added keystones. First floor has seven similar windows. Attic has four dormers with hipped tiled roofs, and horizontally sliding sashes with glazing bars. Rear elevation. At east, (parlour) end, ground and first floors have modern stone mullioned windows - probably replacing C16 windows. C16 stair turret has external doorway with chamfered stone surround, and plain C16 windows. C18 stair tower has one double hung sash window with glazing bars, in a moulded stone surround with cambered head - probably re-used C16 work. One dormer above this with hipped roof and horizontally sliding sashes with glazing bars. Single-storey rear extensions have timber casement windows with glazing bars. At west - (kitchen) end, ground floor has door with timber lintel, and one double-hung sash window with glazing bars. Brick walls link the house with stables at rear, forming a courtyard. Cast iron pump in courtyard, with stone trough. Internally, C16 stone spiral stair survives. Archway from hall, leading to stair, has moulded stone surround and cambered head - (part reconstructed). C18 stair, of open well form, has turned balusters and moulded handrail. First floor rooms have C18 cornices and raised panel doors. Room over kitchen has simple panelling. Cross-walls in corridors have arches with moulded linings. Brick garden walls, with brick piers. Part - built-up archway, of re-used C16 stonework in wall east of house, has date 1737 cut in arch - probably that of re-use. RCHM Monument 3.
