Full Description

A Grade II listed house and attached stable (formerly house, attached cottage and stable), dated to the late 18th century, with 19th century alterations and additions. Built of coursed squared gritstone, with ashlar dressings, all now roughcast, with plain gables, roof-ridge and gable brick chimney-stacks, and a Welsh slate roof. Built to two storeys with a three window range, with a two bay house to centre, a cottage to the south east end (right hand) and a stable to the north west (left hand). The house doorway is flanked by stacked two-light flush-mullioned windows, having casement frames with horizontal glazing bars. Surrounds to the door and window openings are generally obscured by the roughcast. The cottage part has a plain doorway to the north west side, and stacked two-light flush-mullioned windows to the south- east side. The stable part has a central doorway, and a single square window with a hopper vent. There are plain planked doors throughout. At the north-west end, there is a low stone slated lean to kennel, and steps to a first floor gable doorway with a plank door. The rear elevation to the house has a single bay two storey scullery/dairy, running parallel to the main range. The interior has exposed spine beams with plain chamfer stops, and exposed joists to the south east bay of the house, a jowelled surround to the main hearth of the house, and a plain surround to the former cottage hearth, both with late 19th century ranges ranges. There is also an early 20th century tiled hearth to the north west end bay of the house and a side purlin roof. The stalls to the stable survive. (1)
