Farmhouse. C17 considerably remodelled in circa late C18-early C19 and probably
extended at the same time with C19 additions. Plastered cob walls. Thatch roof,

where it is considerably lower. Large projecting plastered rubble stack with brick
shaft at right-hand end of main range and also at gable end of right-hand range,
brick stack at left-hand end.
Plan: original plan form is unclear and has been considerably altered. The main
range to the left has a symmetrical 2-room plan with central stairhall but the
right-hand room clearly dates to the C17. Behind the left-hand room is an unheated
dairy wing probably C18. Recessed from the right-hand room is another 1-room range
also apparently C17 which formerly extended further that way. C19 outshuts added
along rear wall. The main range was remodelled in the late C18 or early C19 and
possibly also extended to the left at this time.
Exterior: 2 storeys. The larger left-hand range has a symmetrical 3 window front of
late C18 or early C19 tripartite sashes with 4:8:4 panes on first floor and 5:15:5
panes on the ground floor. At centre on first floor is panelled and glazed double
door. Below it is late C18, early C19 6-panelled door with a pilaster either side
and flat slate doorhood above. Recessed from the right-hand end and considerably
lower is a further 1-window range with 3-light C20 casements and leanto porch in the
angle with main range. Rear elevation has C19 outshuts apart from dairy wing at
Interior: the main range has panelled shutters and doors, arches and open string
staircase with stick balusters and carved tread ends which date from the
remodelling. The right-hand room has chamfered cross beams and large open fireplace
with C19 surround in front of old lintel. There is another open fireplace in the
right-hand range. Roof timbers all C19 straight principals.
