Information from (S1).

September 2001. Seen in passing.
Brick house, with thatched roof.
Gable walls with massive shaped gables; internal stack to east, external stack to west.
Returns have vertical divisions from brick façade.
One storey and dormers.
(S1) states it to be about 1710 'but now entirely late 20th century in character' with 'multiplicity of 20th century windows overwhelming rear elevation', which makes one wonder why it was listed in that case.
However, although only seen in passing it is clear that this is still basically an intact 17th/18th century house of considerable interest.
E. Rose (NLA), 14 September 2001.
