Full Description

A grade II listed farmhouse dating to the mid 18th century. It is built of red brick, with a plain tile hipped roof and two brick stacks in the pitch of the roof. There is a first floor brick band, and it is two storeys high. The south-east elevation is symmetrical and of three broad bays. There is a central doorway with a gauged brick head and a six panelled door, flanked on each side by three-light wooden casement windows under gauged brick heads. The interior has a broad central corridor the full depth of the house, with a dogleg staircase at the end. It has brick vaulted cellars with a brick tunnel vaulted underground passage leading off. See list description for more details. (1) it is presumed that prior to 1770 [when the 'new', now demolished, Doveridge Hall was built - see SMR 19104], the Cavendish family occupied the Old Hall. (2) Woolley's remarks about 'a good old seat' occupied by William Cavendish refer presumably to the Old Hall. (3)
