Farmhouse and loose-box. Dated 1770 on door lintel. Dressed stone front with
squared rubble returns and rear. Heather-thatched roofs under corrugated-iron
sheeting. Rebuilt brick chimney. Cross-passage plan with byre and loft in
left bay. Raised alternating quoins. Replaced doors and sashes in raised
surrounds. Doorway to right of centre has raised plaque inscribed: R T A 1770.
Breather and doorway at left. Elongated window surround on ground-floor right;
square window surrounds immediately below eaves. Very steeply-pitched roof
with right end stack. Single-storey, 2-bay loose box on right return has tooled
quoins and doorway with alternating jambs and Dutch door. Very steeply-pitched
roof. House and loose-box have reverse-stepped gables. Loft loading bay on
left return of house. Interior: one truss with wany beams of heavy scantling
visible in loft above byre - principal rafters with 2 collars and trenched
purlins are halved and crossed at apex to carry ridge piece. There are probably
2 similar trusses in right half of house. Similar truss in loose-box.

An extremely rare survival in the county of a heather-thatched building.
