GV II*

House, 2 houses from early C17 up to 1970. Late medieval, altered in late C16, early C17, late C17, early C18 and c1970. Timber frame on red brick sill, plastered with panelled basketwork pargetting, and stucco plinth to W wing. Steep old red tile roofs with tall octagonal red brick chimneys with spurred caps. Oldest part, in centre, was an open hall with crown-post roof, with a cross-passage and service bay at the E and a 2-bay, 2 storeys crosswing at W. Late C16 beams inserted in the hall point to a timber-framed predecessor to the late C17 central chimney. The accommodation was greatly enlarged in the early C17 when a long E crosswing of 2 storeys and attics was built and the W crosswing greatly extended to the rear (S) with a gabled stair in the rear angle. A lower gabled 2-storeys and attics range was added beside the E crosswing in the late C17 when the hall chimney was rebuilt. In the early C18 the W wing was extended to W, refronted and reroofed with two parallel ridges E-W, and its central door is now the main entrance to the house. This wing has a near-symmetrical elevation with 3 windows. Flush box sashes with 10/10 panes each side of the central window with 6/6 panes. Pilastered Tuscan door surround with entablature to 4 panel door with round headed radial fanlight. 2- and 3-light flush leaded casements irregularly disposed on rest of N front, with bargeboarded gables of E wing with pierced pendants. Framing exposed in the interior. (RCHM Typescript).
