The property is listed as probably late sixteenth century with an early-seventeenth-century staircase. It consists now of a main central range oriented east-west, with a crosswing at either end. The roof of the west range is fully integrated with the main range and of the same build. The east crosswing looks superficially similar externally, but internally its roof appears to have been rebuilt. The dated roofs have butt purlins and slightly curved collars, with thin curved windbraces on one side only of alternate trusses. Dating commissioned by the Robert Weighton Partnership on behalf of the owner. (Miles, Worthington, and Bridge 2008, VA 39, list 203)
