Farmhouse. Late C16/early C17 with C20 alterations and renovations. Whitewashed
rendered cob and stone rubble; end stacks, front lateral stack; tiled roof (formerly
thatched), half-hipped at left end, gabled at right end.
Plan: Present plan single depth, 3 rooms wide with a former cross passage containing
a later stair to right to centre. C17 kitchen at lower (right) end with curing
chamber, hall and heated parlour at higher end. Timber-framed wall construction in
central section of rear wall suggests former dairy or stair wing at rear which no
longer exists.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front with gabled porch to right to
centre into former passage. C20 glazing and casement windows probably of the 1960s
except for 2 more recent small pane timber casements.
Interior: Survival of C16 and C17 carpentry. The kitchen at the right end has a
chamfered scroll-stopped cross beam and massive open fireplace with a timber lintel,
bread oven and projecting curing chamber. The hall has a chamfered stopped cross
beam, the fireplace and lateral stack have been reduced by the insertion of a
window. The inner room has a moulded cross beam and a good fireplace with moulded
stopped ashlar jambs and a chamfered lintel. Former plank and muntin screens between
passage and kitchen and inner room and hall no longer exist although the fragments of
1 are said to survive above ceiling level.
Roof:. Side-pegged jointed cruck construction with 1 X apex C17 truss over the
kitchen end. Apex not inspected at time of survey (1986).
