Farmhouse. C16 origins with circa mid C19 addition. Rendered walls - probably
rubble to front range and cob to rear wing. Gable-ended slate roof. 2 gable-end
brick stacks to front range, rendered brick stack axial between rear wing and front
Plan: the oldest part of the house is the rear wing which almost certainly survives
in truncated form but now consists of a large heated room with a small dairy at the
end - these may represent the hall and inner room of a 3-room plan house. A new
front block was added at right angles to the original house, in circa mid C19,
consisting of 2 equal-sized rooms with a central stairhall. No doubt the rear wing
was relegated to service use at this time. C19 or early C20 outshut built against
outer face of rear wing and left end of C19 range.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window front of circa mid C19 16-pane sashes,
12 panes to central 1st floor window. Below it is pedimented doorhood with moulded
cornice and probably contemporary wooden lattice porch with 6-panel door behind.
Outshut against left-hand end. Rear wing has C20 sash window and central C19 stone
Interior: the main room of the old wing his a chamfered axial beam and an early
wooden doorframe to the dairy with cambered head. Tne C19 front range retains its
6-panel doors, panelled shutters and staircase with stick balusters and heavy turned
