Farmhouse. Late C16/early C17. 2 storeys, formerly with attics; 3-cell
lobby-entrance form to main range, and a cross-wing, probably later, on the
north. Timber-framed and rendered; black glazed pantiles; ornamental ridge
tiles. The internal chimney-stack has a plain red brick shaft. One dormer
window within a high gabled projection with a carved and moulded tie-beam,
pierced and fluted barge-boards and a spike finial; similar bargeboards and
finials to the other gables. Old 3-light and 4-light casement windows with
transomes, and some plain 3-light replacement casements. C19 porch in colour-
washed brick, enclosed and gabled. At the south end, facing the road, the
gable wall is in colour-washed brick: moulded corbels and the moulded base to
a former finial at the apex of the roof; a 3-light window with cavetto-moulded
brick mullions to the attic storey, 2 similar blocked 2-light windows to the
upper floor, and a similar blocked 5-light window to the ground floor.
Interior not examined, but the timbers are all said to be covered. Attics now
sealed off and roof inaccessible.
