Site Description An eighteenth century and later house, now demolished, on the site of an earlier mansion, once the home of the seventeenth century antiquarian Robert Vaughan.
A Georgian mansion was built in 1750-54. This was a formal composition, apparently of three cubes or bays, the centre of three windows rising to a pediment, the outer two window bays apparently lower. The house faced east. It was refashioned in about 1830, when the facade was cased in stone. The main eastern facade of seven windows and two and a half storeys now had gables over the outer bays and gabled dormers over the centre. There was a central gabled porch. It was demolished follwing a fire in 1962.
The service buildings west of the house still remain.

Associated with: grounds and gardens (NPRN 265208).
