Monkton, Monkton Lane, Dacre House
A simple double-fronted house with stone front, brick rear and a re-laid slate roof with prominent plastic vent tiles. The plastic gutters and uPVC windows with modern openings spoil the historic character, especially the full width porch and bay windows. The rear offshots and outhouses have flat or shallow-pitched roofs and plastic windows.
