Long Description:
Thatched old manor house on Main Street, Leire.

"GV II House. Largely C16 but displaying evidence of several phases of building (or rebuilding). Timber framed, of post and truss construction, with brick panel infill, and a brick right-hand bay with granite in the gable wall. Thatched roof. 2 storied. 3 bays of timber framing and a brick bay with 2 renewed casement windows to right of doorway which is perhaps a C18 addition. Right hand timber framed bay has continuous vertical posts one of which is arch braced, on padstones, and with a single middle rail. It contains the doorway to the right. The two bays beyond are higher, possibly of slightly later date. The outer posts have curved arched braces, straight braces to central post. Two middle rails.
