GV l

House. Late C13 or C14 tower, attached house possibly C16 extended and altered mid C17 and again in C18. Squared stone and random rubble. Lakeland slate roof. Medieval tower to left with later house attached to right. Extreme right section has walls of similar thickness to tower and may have been a second tower linked to the first by a hall range. Central section extended to rear in C18 and the whole re-roofed to make a roughly rectangular building. 2 storeys plus attic. In three sections: Left bay is the tower, of large, even, medieval squared stone; early C17 round-headed doorway with roll-moulded surround and above a 12-pane Yorkshire sash in double-chamfered surround. Right of this a straight joint to second section, the later house, which is 3 bays with 12-pane sashes in C17 chamfered surrounds under string courses. Projecting 2-bay section on extreme right has early C17 doorway to left with multi-moulded surround and renewed Tudor-arched lintel; 12- and 9-pane sashes in double-chamfered surrounds. Hipped roof with large external stacks to right and to rear. C19 lean-to carriage house on left return.

Interior: tower has tunnel-vaulted ground floor strengthened by 8 massive square-section transverse ribs; in north-west corner pointed-arched chamfered doorway to newel stair of which only the circular stairwell remains. Similar broader doorway into attached house. Mid C17 open-well staircase with moulded handrail, square newels with ball finialsand diabolo balusters; the balustrade continues beyond the present top of the stairs and is an indication that the house was once 3 full storeys.

Adjacent to south-east corner is a round font from former Shaftoe Church, now used as a planter: probably C12.
