House. c.1710-20, with mid C18 parlour wing at the rear. Red and burnt brick on plinth, except for the rear wall which is timber framed. Parapetted roof, tiled with end stacks and moulded brick eaves cornice. Original early C18 house of single range plan with service and offices to the north end and principal rooms flanking a narrower hall and stairbay.
It has been suggested that the house was built for Richard Hitch on his marriage to Mary Hawkes in 1704 or that it was the bailiffs house built by the Hitch family following their purchase of the Argentines and Trayles Manors.
