A C16-C17 timber-framed and plastered house. Restored and renovated in
the C20 with modern doors and windows but in style. A narrow gabled 3
storeyed wing projects on the front, probably a staircase wing added in
the C17. The upper storey is jettied on the north-west end of the front
on either side of the wing, on exposed joists. The timber-framing is
exposed on most of the south-west and north-west fronts. The house is
mainly 2 storeys. The windows are casements with leaded lights. 2 gabled
porches project on the front. The porches and the 3 storey wing have
carved bargeboards (C20), to an old design. At the south-east end a slightly
lower wing extends, probably this was originally a granary or outbuilding,
but now converted to become part of the dwelling. The wing at the rear
on the north-west end has a large external chimney stack with tabled offsets.
Roofs tiled, hipped at the north-west and south-east ends.
