II*

Large House, c 1611. Coursed rubble with some ashlar work, and stone tiled roof. 2 storeys with attics, a shallow H-plan, loosely symmetrical about both principal axes. Entrance front has gabled wings with finials and ovolo mullioned windows with flat hoodmoulds. The recessed central range has a round-arched collonade to ground floor with Tuscan columns on tall bases, and balustraded balcony above. The right hand bay of the collonade is the porch. At first floor level is a large, centrally placed ashlar stack with flanking mullioned and transomed lights, one containing a door. There is an arcaded parapet running round the inner faces of the wings and across the front, left and right of the stack, at eaves level. The garden front is similar, but the collonade consists of flat arches and over the balcony, in the central range which is ashlar, the outer mullioned and transomed openings flank a large, 8-light mullioned and transomed window with central king mullion. This is contained beneath a small gable, matching the stack on the outer facade. The windows of the wings on this facade are also larger, and have king mullions.

Inside, various fireplaces, a wide newel staircase with heavy balusters with finials, and a fine panelled room.

Enclosing the house to the front, a dry stone wall with shaped ashlar coping, and 2 pairs of gate piers. The westernmost ashlar, octagonal with large ball finials. The easternmost are more refined, rusticated ashlar with inner pilasters and consoles and ball finials
