Appraisal

A handsome and well-proportioned house in a parkland setting that retains many original features including a well proportioned entrance porch with historic panelled door, fanlight and cornice, as well as historic sash windows and entrance steps. The architectural ensemble of house, outbuildings, parkland, walled garden, gate lodge, and gates forms an excellent example of a typical late Georgian demesne.
