House, formerly farmhouse. C16. Timber framed with colourwashed render

storeys. Ground floor hall plan of 6 bays with chimney stack, possibly of
a later date. Yard front: brick skin of C19 Flemish bond brick with
debased Tudor ornaments. Porch at right with brick piers at either side,
gable with chamfered timbers and mace finial to its apex. To right of this
is a 2-light casement with Tudor hoodmould with label-stops and to left are
two similar 2-light windows, between which is a single-light casement. To
the first floor are four 2-light casements with hood moulds and label
stops. Hipped roof with gablets. Axial chimney stack at left of 3 flues
rebuilt in C19 brick. The right hand end is rebuilt in Flemish bond C19
brick and has a central chimney stack with offsets. The left hand end has
an outshut at far left, running along the rear which has a 2-light
casement. and at right of this is a doorway with hood mould and two 2-
light windows, also with hood moulds. To the first floor at centre is a
further, similar 2-light casement with a C20 single-light window to its
left. Rear: masked by C19 lean-to outshut.

Interior: the ground floor hall has chamfered and jowled wall posts
supporting massive chamfered and end-stopped ceiling beams with joists.
Close studded walling. C16 or early C17 chimney stack with massive
bressumer which has a chamfered lower edge and cambered top. Similar
ceiling to the room beyond the stack. The third ground floor room was
originally divided into two service rooms, as mortice holes in an axial
ceiling beam show, each having a door through from the hall, the right hand
one now being blocked. Close studded walling and one blocked window. To
the first floor are jowled wall posts, blocked windows with diamond-section
mullions and cambered tie beams to the dividing walls. Within the roof
space are chamfered crown posts with arch braces that connect
longitudinally to the collar purlin, collars and common rafters all having
long, uncut pegs and no soot blackening. The wall plate at first floor
level has edge-halved scarf joints with square, vertical butts which appear
to be of the same date as the building.
