Numerous derelict and restored two-storey outbuildings to rear arranged around courtyard.

Pitched slate roof to former barn having rubble stone walls, square-headed window openings with timber frames.

Appraisal

The classical form and fenestration of this middle-sized house is typical of its time. The fine timber sliding sash windows add much to its character, while the extensive ranges of outbuildings add context to its setting.
