It also states good interior shows the work of all the main building phases and then Throwleigh Barton is a most interesting house, it is larger and grander than most 16th century houses in the area. In the early 16th century it had a large hall and large inner room parlour. The arch brace is also a very unusual feature in this area, a degree of sophistication which must indicate an owner of higher than usual social status.
