Farmhouse. Probably c.1760, but with restoration date 1895 over door.
Handmade brick in Flemish bond, on sandstone plinth, with sandstone
dressings. Double-depth 3-bay plan. Three storeys, symmetrical, in
classical style, with rusticated stone quoins, stone bands on 2 levels,
moulded gutter cornice, gable chimneys; central door with 6 fielded panels,
stone doorcase and lintel with pseudo-voussoirs and keystone; 2 wide
vertical rectangular windows at ground floor, 3 square windows at 1st
floor, and 3 horizontal rectangular windows at 2nd floor, all with moulded
sills and splayed heads, and the heads of those at ground and 1st floor
matching that of the door; all with altered glazing. Both gable walls have
some inserted or altered windows at the lower levels; the rear has a
2-storey extension to the 1st bay, a large rectangular window with splayed
head at ground and 1st floors of the 2nd bay, a smaller similar window in
the centre at 1st floor, and 3 smaller altered windows at 2nd floor.

good example of mid-Georgian domestic architecture.
