Farmhouse. Circa mid C17 with C19 additions. Part rendered rubble walls. Gable-
ended slate roof. 2 brick gable end stacks to front range. Projecting rubble stack
with brick shaft to rear leanto. Rear wing has small C17 rubble gable-end stack
with moulded dripcourse.
Plan: C17 rear wing has 2-room plan, the end room heated by a gable-end stack; the
original house however is likely to have been larger, part of it possibly replaced
by the present C19 front range. This was added probably in the mid C19 and has 2-
room and central stairhall plan and with an outshut built as kitchen behind it,
either contemporary or slightly later. Probably later C19 outshut built behind C17
Exterior: 2 storeys. Regular 4-window front, 2 to ground floor which are original
12-pane sashes with contemporary or later 2-light casements above. To left of
centre is C19 hipped roof porch with early-mid C19 6-panel door behind. C19 single
storey extension at right-hand end. Behind the left-hand end is a large outshut.
Behind the right-hand end the C17 rear wing extends. On its outer face it has 3
small gables with C17 3-light hollow-chamfered stone mullion windows. C20 casements
on ground floor with central doorway. 2 storey outshut on inner face of C17 wing.
Interior: C17 wing has an original ovolo-moulded wooden doorframe on the 1st floor,
but in a curious position as a former outside wall. 2 fairly rough C17 plank and
muntin screens also survive on the 1st floor. The wing also probably retains its
original roof structure with substantial straight principals and threaded or
trenched purlins. Front section retains C19 joinery with 6-panelled doors a
panelled dado and staircase with wreathed handrail, open string and stick balusters.
