Appraisal

A well-maintained house displaying several phases of construction and retaining many important architectural features such as slate roofs, the majority of the timber sash windows, fine cut stone Venetian window and elegant fanlight to the main entrance. The outbuildings, extended in the nineteenth century, are of high quality, in good condition and retain their original character. Other features in the grounds include a stone bridge with cut stone plinth and cast-iron railings to the front avenue and two gate lodges and cut stone gateways.
