Description
Detached two-storey country house, built c.1795, having three-bay front elevation with gabled breakfront with entrance porch having cornice, balustrade and chamfered corners. Three and four-bay returns, with slightly advanced gable-fronted bays to west and double-height canted bow window to south gable, and recent single-storey extension to rear. Pitched and hipped artificial slate roofs with rendered chimneystacks. Unpainted ruled-and-lined rendered walls. Square-headed openings with replacement uPVC windows, having limestone sills to ground and with continuous limestone sill course to first floor of all elevations except rear. Moulded render surrounds to canted bow and to porch openings. Square-headed door opening with replacement timber door and over-light, with flight of steps. Multiple-bay two-storey outbuildings to yard to rear have pitched slate and corrugated-iron roofs, rendered and rubble stone walls, square-headed window openings and elliptical and segmental carriage arches. Remains of walled garden to site.

Appraisal

The unevenly sized gables and multiplicity of broad chimneys make an interesting roof line on this building. The vertical emphasis of the tall ground floor windows contrasts pleasingly with the wide two-storey elevations. The structure is emphasized by the render window surrounds and sill course. The site is enhanced by the retention of an enclosed yard with two-storey outbuildings and the remains of a walled garden.
