extended in later C20 to form an open-fronted porch to the passage doorway which has
a C19 panelled and part-glazed door. Rear elevation has semi-circular stair
projection to left of centre and outshut to its right.
Interior: The feet of straight principals resting on the wall-plate are visible on
the 1st floor and the roof timbers probably date from the C19. The barn roof may-be
contemporary or slightly earlier with rough straight principals which have lapped
and pegged collars. The hall has a granite framed fireplace which has had a more
recent infill. It has a monolithic granite jamb to the right and a rubble jamb to
the left which may have been rebuilt when a cloam oven was inserted in that side.
Chamfered cross beam with no stops visible. The wooden newel stairs have probably
had their treads renewed. The inner room fireplace has stone jambs and a dressed
granite back with a shallow shelf, its lintel has been replaced.
This house forms part of an unspoilt hamlet of early farmhouses.
