Former farmhouse, now 2 cottages. Dated 1630 internally. Timber framed, part
plastered; colourwashed brick to ground floor and brick to both gable ends
(that to the south of C18 date). Roof pantiled to front and plaintiled to
rear. 2 storeys and attic. An unusual form, with 2 short wings forming L-
shape plan; it is likely that the west end of the north wing has been lost.
Each wing has 2 windows, C18-C19 casements. North wing has 6- panelled raised
and fielded door and open porch on timber posts. South wing has a 4-panel
door, also with a simple open porch. 2 flat-roofed dormers to south wing. An
axial stack to the north wing, not quite at the gable end. Main room of north
wing has ovolo-moulded cross-beamed ceiling: the soffits are carved with
flowers, and at the centre is a Tudor rose and the date. Ovolo-moulded cross-
beams in chamber above: in the centre a cartouche with the initials 'NF'.
Timbers almost wholly concealed.
