Appraisal

A modest-scale range originally built as two separate houses occupying a prominent position at the merging of The Faythe with Maudlintown. Having been reasonably well maintained, the house continues to present an early aspect with much of the historic or original fabric surviving in place, both to the exterior and to the interior, thereby upholding some of the character of the local setting.
