|Type of record:||Building|
This grand abode dates to the 17th century. It is built from a rendered and underbuilt timber frame refaced with brick to the ground floor front. A brick cross wing has been added along with a two storey porch. Most of the windows are of 19th century date. There is an off centre axial chimneystack with four octagonal shafts to the main block with gable chimneystacks to the crosswing. Inside, there is a panelled room, half 17th century half 18th century. This panelling is of exceptional quality but some parts are obviously reused from elsewhere.
