rubble footings ; thatched roof, hipped at right end, hipped at left end and carried
down as a catslide over the left end outshut. Rear addition with concrete tile roof;
massive projecting stack on front with rendered and brick shaft; smaller, later, left
end stack.
Plan: An unusually small C17 house for the region, a single depth range with a heated
room to the right of a passage entrance containing the stair and a small service
outshut to the left, probably originally unheated. C20 single-storey rear addition
forms overall L plan.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with a thatched porch on posts and
plank front door to left of centre into a passage. Late C20 2-light timber casements
with glazing bars. The rear elevation has 1 ground floor 3-light C17 chamfered
mullioned window lighting the main room.
Interior: Chamfered scroll-stopped crossbeam to main room, fireplace blocked but
probably retains original lintel and jambs.
Roof: Apex not-inspected but an exposed timber on the ground floor may be the foot of
a cruck truss.
An attractive and unusually small C17 house.
