1738 (altered in mid C19). Dated in iron ties on the north gable, and this date is confirmed by an insurance badge of the London Assurance Company dateable to 1740. The south gable has the patron's initials, "IM" in iron ties.

Doorway with semi-circular glazing bars, chanelled quoins and voussoirs. Service wing to rear.

Interior. Outstanding staircase hall with high quality plasterwork typical of circa 1740, viz: ceiling of lower hall has roundel with figure of Cupid, framed by foliage drops: stair walls have foliage swags; over window is an owl (symbol of Pallas Athene) framed by more swags; and ceiling of upper hall is filled by a particularly large Judgement of Paris scene. Lower hall has pine wainscotting. Staircase has slender (non-shaped) balusters of oak. North ground floor room wainscotted throughout, with arched recess on one side, and an elaborately carved overmantel (possibly a slightly later addition). South ground floor room altered in mid C19.
