Farmhouse. Dated 1744 (rainwater head). Late C19 addition at rear. Red brick with grey sandstone ashlar dressings. Hipped plain tile roof. 3 storeys with 2 storey addition at rear. South-west front: chamfered quoins, moulded plinth, moulded string course between ground and first floors and moulded eaves cornice. Brick ridge stack off-centre to left and external lateral brick stack at rear. 2:1:2 bays; glazing bar sashes with exposed boxes, moulded stone cills and rusticated stone lintels with raised keystones. Central door of 6 raised and fielded panels with 3-part rectangular overlight and stone doorcase consisting of lugged architrave and frieze with central uncarved block and plain console brackets supporting triangular pediment. Right- and left-hand return fronts of 2 bays; mostly blind windows with trompe glazing bar sashes. Rear: chamfered plinth and toothed-brick eaves cornice. 2 bays to right with glazing bar sashes. Lead rainwater head dated: "17 EC 44". Late C19 wing at rear. 2 storeys. Hipped roof. Sashes with gauged brick heads and raised keystones. C18 service block adjoining at rear. Red brick with red sandstone ashlar dressings and plain tile roof. One storey and attic. Chamfered quoins and kneelers, chamfered plinth, plat bands, toothed- brick eaves cornice, and parapeted gable end to south-east with chamfered stone coping and integral brick end stack. South-west front: central gabled eaves dormer with 2-light wooden casement and moulded barge boards. Blocked or blind window to left with stone cill and keyed stone lintel. Boarded door to right. Late C19 glazed lean-to addition to front. Left-hand gable end has first-floor-leaded wooden cross window with stone cill and keyed stone lintel and blind ground-floor window to left with stone cill and keyed stone lintel; C20 lean-to-addition to right. Rear: central gabled eaves dormer. 2 segmetal- headed wooden cross windows, that to right with lowered cill. Interior of house: largely complete C18 fixtures and fittings. Staircase hall: moulded cornice. Dog-leg staircase rising 2 storeys with landings; open string with cut brackets, turned balusters (2 per tread), turned columnar newel posts, and moulded ramped handrail. Right-hand ground-floor room: raised and fielded panelling with dado rail and moulded dentil cornice. Fireplace with marble surround, lugged architrave with egg and dart enrichment, moulded dentil cornice and lugged panel with egg and dart enrichment. Left-hand ground-floor room: raised and fielded panelling with dado rail and moulded cornice. Fireplace altered but with C18 lugged panel above. Two smaller panelled rooms to left. Doors with 6 raised and fielded panels and moulded architraves. The stair- case is approached from the rear of the house, not, as is more usual, from the front door. There is a blocked doorway in the rear wall at the foot of the stairs which suggests that there was formerly a principal entrance here, before the C19 wing was added. There is no evidence that the staircase has been altered. The "EC" on the rainwater head might refer to a member of the Corbet family , who owned land in this area. This is a largely complete and well-detailed example of a large mid-Cl8 Farmhouse.
