rendered, probably stone and cob ; slate roof, hipped at left end of main range,

lateral stack.
Plan: 3 room and through passage main range, the inner room unheated, the hall heated
by the rear lateral stack, stair in rounded turret to rear right of right hand room.
A rear left wing, at right angles to the inner room probably functioned as a dairy
and gives an overall L plan. Outshuts with catslide roofs to rear of right hand room
and along most of left return of range. Interior not fully inspected at time of
survey (1986) but there is a possibility of a late medieval core to the building and
sooted roof timbers may survive.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 6 window front with regular fenestration, blocked
or false window above porch. Steps up to a C19 brick gabled porch to the passage to
right of centre; studded plank door with strap hinges. Fenestration of C20 2-light
timber transomed casements, one earlier small pane casement survives at the left end
in the end wall of the outshut.
Interior: Not fully inspected but features of interest survive on the ground floor
and the first floor and roofspace may be of interest. The hall has an open fireplace
with timber boards fixed to the jambs and lintel ; chamfered stopped crossbeams and a
plank and muntin screen at the higher end with step stopped chamfers to the muntins,
the screen is supported on solid footings. The inner room also has chamfered stopped
cross beams and there are exposed beams to the rear wing. The right hand room has no
exposed beams but C18 2-panel doors, one on the rear wall and one to the passage.
C17 stair in turret with turned balusters.
Roofspace: Not inspected but may be of interest including the possibility of late
medieval trusses.
