ashlar chimneys; stone slate roof. Two-storey with attic, L-plan.
Former barn and service wing form west-facing courtyard to north.
North and west sides: 2 parapet gables to C17 house on each of
these elevations, each with quatrefoil gable vent and cross roll
saddles. Parapet copings span rainwater outlet with stone chute
between each gable and at corners. Continuous string courses with
recessed cavetto mullioned casements positioned irregularly below
on north side, 2, 3 and 4-light casements to ground and upper
floor; 2-light in each gable with separate hoodmoulds. Two-light
casements below each gable on west side to upper floor and attic;
various single-light casements to ground and upper floor. Stone
rainwater downpipe on north side feeding water to stone tank.
Former north doorway now blocked, present doorway with plank door
in C18 addition to east. Two gables to west side of barn, each
with 7 rows of pigeon holes with perches. Loft doorway with timber
lintel and plank door to left gable with stone steps and projecting
nosing to landing. Parapet north gable end of barn extended and
linked to north service wing. Courtyard wall has gateway with
decorative wrought iron gate. South side: cross-gabled part of
Cl7 house projects forward to left with gable end chimney having
moulded cap. Continuous drip courses; various single-light
casements. Single-window fenestration below east-facing parapet
gable, 4-light to ground floor, 3-light to upper floor, 2-light
with separate hoodmould to attic. Main part of south elevation has
scattered 2-light casements, continuous drip course to ground floor

Interior: main room has large fireplace with chamfered surround.
Ogee beam chamfer stops. Early cupboards in room above parlour.
Cellar contains former cockpit. Former barn has unusual Rococo
fireplace, presumably brought from elsewhere. Extended collar barn
roof. A very good example of the early C17 L-plan type of house,
together with the former barn forming a very picturesque courtyard.
