Appraisal

This house, built in the Tudor Revival style, together with its ornamental yard and orchard walls and attractive outbuildings, forms a pleasant and interesting group in the landscape. The house retains much of its mid-nineteenth-century fabric, form and character, with original features such as timber bargeboards, sliding sash windows and render detailing still intact.
