Historic Environment Record entry
This large farm complex greatly enhances its rural context as it sits on a very prominent site at the convergence of two roads. Although the building was designed to be, and is still mostly rendered, it is possible to study the high quality of build due to the now exposed facade. The outbuildings also display good quality workmanship and materials. This is a very good example of the type.
Main house with west single storey service wing and extension and north outbuildings.
Main house: 2 storey, 3 bay. Hipped slate roof with 4 render chimneys. Front (south) elevation: (originally rendered but now exposed) rubble stone construction with brick dressings, quoins to angles and stone lintels (ground floor only). Windows 12 pane (6/6) timber sashes without horns. Rear (north) elevation: painted plain render with quoin effect to angles. Central arch-topped stair window. All windows matching front elevation.
West service wing: matching render finish with pierre perdu to gable.
Northwest stables and outbuildings: large L-shaped range. Random stone rubble construction with a mix of long/short stone, brick, and rough-hewn window openings and arches. 3 pairs of pigeon holes.
The whole farm is enclosed behind a stone wall with a gated pair of dressed pillars, all on a triangular site.
The interior retains many good mid-late 19th century features, with some especially ornate plaster detail, and at least one Italian marble chimney-piece.
