LB (grade II) descriprtion :
"House. C16, C17 and later. 2 storeys: a long main range, with various
extensions behind. Timber framed and rendered; colour-washed brick at rear;
plaintiled roofs; white brick copings to gables. An internal chimney-stack
with a rebuilt red brick shaft. Random fenestration: various C20 casement
windows; one small casement with square leaded panes in a cast-iron frame;
small-paned sash windows with flush frames to the ground storey; replacement
sashes with a single vertical bar to lights on the return (garden) front. All
the sash windows have early C19 folding shutters inside. A C19 wing at the
rear has a large Edwardian mullion-and-transome type window, and an adjacent
gabled porch has a small early C19 Gothick window with Y-tracery. The basic
house, on the left side of the main range, is apparently a 3-cell lobby-
entrance type in 5 bays: some plain framing and ceiling-beams exposed, and one
ground floor room with a main beam moulded and carved in folded-leaf design
with intricate leaf-stops. The right-hand side of the main range, a late C17
addition, has been Georgianised, and contains a good early C18 dog-leg stair
with turned balusters." (S2)
