Sydenham Barton. Farmhouse. 18th century or earlier origins extended and remodelled in the 19th century. Stone rubble with slate roof gabled at ends. 1 projecting stone stack, 1 stack on ridge, 1 lateral stack on north front. L-plan. The west block may preserve the remains of a 3-room and through passage late 17th century plan with 1 rear right projecting lateral stack, and a second stack, now internal, may have been a rear lateral stack heating the hall. A wing at right angles to the west block adjoins the coach house and stables to the north of Sydenham House, and is probably a later addition. A single storey south facing addition to the west block was probably originally a dairy. 2 storeys. 3-bay west front to the west block.
