The description shall be amended to read:-

House, now restaurant with former stable block attached to rear range. Probably mid-18th century with early 19th century addition. Dressed sandstone with ashlar dressings and quoins, stone slate roofs. 2 storey with attic. 2-cell direct-entry plan, double depth, L-shaped with wing attached to rear of 1st cell. House: 3-bay symmetrical facade. Central doorway has composite jambs and ashlar lintel with segmental arch and dropped keystone, moulded surround much weathered. Above door is enriched carved panel with 2 split balusters set either side raised circle which has marks of gnomen of former sundial. Above is a blind bullseye window the oval recessed having a ball in relief. To either side on both floors are windows with plain-stone surrounds and overlapping sills and lintels (possibly tripartite sashed windows reduced in width). Modern timber glazing of tripartite form with applied diamond leading. Curved gutter brackets, coped gables with kneelers and ashlar stacks. Left-hand return: (fronts King Street) set in house gable, 2 windows to ground floor with plain stone surrounds and projecting sills and smaller one above with blocked window to attic. Attached to rear of house 2-storey long range at right angles of two builds as indicated by quoins separating 2 cells. First cell has 2-light windows to each floor. Second cell has doorway with monolithic jambs to left of 19th century single-light sash with 18th century 2-light window above. Square gutter brackets. Single-storey link to left-hand corner block, originally the stables and a separate structure, which breaks forward and terminates at the road junction. Former Stable building: this has regularly coursed stone work with hipped stone-slate roof. The elevation to King Street is obscured by hoarding, but from interior evidence has 6 tall arch-headed windows (blocked). Rear elevation: fronts Whitehall Road and has former taking-in door to first floor reduced to window. Attached to left and integral with this building, is a single-storey range with corrugated iron roof. This was possibly a cart shed originally being adjacent to the stable block. Right-hand return of house and attached buildings partly rendered. Interior: House, ground floor largely featureless apart from a dog-leg stair, open-strung with decorative stringing (modern stick balusters and handrail) and panelled understair with raised-and-fielded panels. First floor has oak beamed ceilings with stop-chamfered spine beams and slender wavy floor-joists which support the attic floor. The windows on the front have panelled surrounds with raised-and-fielded panels and under panels. Long range, has a roof with a single oak king-post truss the tie-beam heavily cambered and with long braces to a square-set ridge. Low angled principal rafters carry single continuously scarfed purlins. Above the west 2-light window is a deep oak lintel. Stable: the west wall has 6 tall recessed blank arches having semicircular-arched heads with brick 'soldiers'. Continuous timber sill has metal railed hay-rack with substantial bars surviving to 4 of the recesses. The east wall has two doorways (one blocked) and a window with the tie-stone jamb of the door forming the window sill. Between the doors is a large timber rack with long wooden pegs for hanging harness. Hayloft floor carried by 3 oak spine beams with run-out stops. Brick division wall to north end formerly supported hay-loft floor (most joists gone) with taking-in door in North gable, had tack-room under. Roof: 4 bays with soft-wood 'fish-bone' king- post trusses the tie-beam bolted through tot he king post. Two pairs of oak tusked-purlins chamfered with run-out stops, the through tenons pegged, support original oak rafters. The hipped ends have ties at right angles. In a prominent position at the junction of two main roads: the house is built alongside the Bradford and Wakefield Turnpike Road of 1752/3, this may well be the date of the construction of the house; while the stable and cart shed (or coach house) follows the alignment of the Leeds and Whitehall Turnpike Road of 1825/6, the probable date of the stable addition.
