cell open hall house with cross-passage entrance. 2 storeys and attics.
Timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roof with a C19 gabled casement

largely rebuilt in C18/C19. Mid C19 sashes, those at the ground floor having
small panes and hinged panelled external shutters. A single storey C19
parapetted extension at the front has similar windows. C19 entrance doorway
in the cross-passage position has a mid C20 battened oak door. The open hall
was built in 2 unequal bays. Twin doorways with altered 4-centred arched

gone but the supporting shaft for one of them is visible in the bar. The hall
roof is smoke-blackened from the open hearth. A crown-post system remains
over the parlour cell, but has been removed from the hall roof (if it
existed). Arch-braced close-studwork and large unmoulded 1st floor joists are
exposed at the ena cells. A chimney was inserted between the hall and parlour
and an upper floor over the hall, in C17. A rear service wing and an outshut
were added in C18 or C19.
