Description
Detached nine-bay three-storey house over basement, built c.1770, now derelict. Hipped slate roof with ashlar chimneystacks and parapet. Channelled limestone to entrance level, with string courses between floor and with ashlar limestone to basement and upper floors. Carved limestone dressings to window openings with timber sash windows. Carved limestone doorcase, flanked by Doric columns with entablature and pediment above. Pedimented window over porch.

Appraisal

This country house is of apparent architectural form and detailing. The form of the building is articulated by the masonry dressings, such as the channelled limestone to the entrance level and the string courses. The imposing carved pedimented Doric porch adds artistic interest to the façade. Though now in poor condition, this building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the timber sash windows and slate roof.
