Slate roof, lower over left-hand end, gabled to right, hipped to left. 2 granite rubble stacks with dripstones - one axial which has granite cap, and one at right gable end.

In circa early C19 shippon converted to domestic accommodation, passage blocked at front and higher end re-fronted and given central entrance passage with stairs at rear. Rear outshut added in C19, possibly contemporary.

Ground floor windows have flat granite arches above. Left-hand, shippon, part has similar first floor window in half dormer with a C19 roundheaded window below.
Interior: Hall has chamfered cross-beams. Plain C19 framed staircast. Simple C19 panelling to inner room and room above. Roof over shippon end completely replaced in later C20, feet of principal rafters not visible in first floor of house, roof likely to be C19/C20.
