Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Rural property of 17th/18th century origins, retaining historic character and some original features, including corbelled fireplaces. Property comprises two ranges - the west range is apparently 17th century or earlier, developed into a two-storey dwelling and re-faced on the east entrance elevation; the east range is probably of 18th century origin, still single storey.

Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795. Detached house comprising 2 ranges at right angles, western one which may have originated as a single storey cottage later developed into a 2 storey dwelling, with 18th century wing to east. Modern extensions to north.

Some internal features have survived as follows: East range: apparently originally two rooms with hall offset to west of centre, and staircase; the east hall wall and stair gone, staircase to rear, former hallway open to east room with 18th century corbelled granite fireplace in east wall, corbel to south side, offset timber lintel, bread oven in north cheek behind large granite upright, flanking cupboards in wall; remains of granite fireplace in west room, timber replacement lintel, corbels removed, niche in dressed granite wall to south; no surviving features in upper floor. West range: at right angles to east range linked via dressed granite doorway in north-east corner of large ground floor room, now kitchen, corbelled granite fireplace in south wall, timber lintel, no other features. The plan form has been altered internally.
