House. C16 with C17 improvements. Plastered cob on rubble footings; rubble stacks;
thatched roof. Originally a 3- or 4-room-and-through-passage plan house facing road

hall and inner room with newel stair in projecting turret to rear. Projecting end
stack to inner room (now disused) and projecting rear lateral stack to hall. 2
storeys. Irregular 5 window front of late C19 and C20 copy casement windows with
glazing bars. Passage door towards right end under C20 thatch-gabled hood. Roof is
half-hipped to right and gable-ended to left and carried over the top of the stack.
Secondary door left end and C20 window of leaded panes. Rear includes a small light
with old leaded glass and some small blocked window embrasures.
Interior: the oldest structure apparent shows in the roof. 2 C16 closed trusses at
western end. The western, over lobby-inner room partition, may never have been
filled above collar level as roof appears smoke-blackened either side. C18 or C19
roof over hall, passage and service end. On ground floor any passage screen and
hall-lobby partition have been removed. Cob crosswall to service end. Service room
has plain-chamfered axial beam. Hall has C17 crossbeam, chamfered with scroll stops
and contemporary rubble fireplace, its oak lintel has plain chamfer on slightly
curved soffit. Inner room has late C17-early C18 axial beam, chamfered with runout
