limewashed at front, rear wall partly roughcast. Grouted scantle slate roof,
reclad in Delabole slates over house. Lower end of roof half hipped higher end
gabled. Rendered axial stacks. Probably originally a three room and through
passage plan, possibly with open hall originally, the lower end probably originally
a shippon and rebuilt as such in late C17 or early C18. Floor inserted into hall
possibly in C17 when axial stack was built at lower end of hall backing onto passage.
Inner room probably originally unheated and later stack inserted at gable end.
Stair turret on rear wall at lower end of hall. Outbuilding possibly a store with
loft above added to higher end. Rear doorway of through passage blocked. A second
front door inserted into front wall of hall. Disturbed masonry at lower end wall
of shippon suggests heightening of eaves. Straight joint between house and shippon
suggests rebuilding of shippon. Two storey house and regular four window range
with one window to outbuilding at higher left hand end and shippon at lower right
hand end. All C20 casements mostly with glazing bars, ground floor right of centre
and first floor right without glazing bars. Ground floor windows and doorways
have granite lintels. First floor windows timber lintels. Through passage doorway
to right. Later doorway to left of centre with large C20 conservatory porch.
Outbuilding at left hand higher end with doorway and small ground and first floor
window. Shippon at lower right hand end with three ground floor shippon doors
all with granite lintels and loft loading door at centre, partly blocked to form
window. Rear: stair turret to left of centre with window to left in passage rear
doorway. Left hand external stone stairs to loft over shippon with double doors
and slated canopy. Ventilation slit low down in rear wall of shippon and another
higher in gable end. Disturbed masonry in gable end suggest eaves heightening.
Right hand higher end doorway at higher ground level to loft over store. Interior:
Hall has two axial half beams and one central axial beam, roughly chamfered without
stop. The lower end half beam is over blocked fireplace and the higher end half
beam is unchamfered on inner room side and was originally over a partition which
has been removed. Former inner room and half fireplaces blocked with C20 grates.
Passage has beam (possibly half beam) against back of stack, chamfered with hollow
step stops. Solid masonry walls on either side of passage. Winder stairs with
wooden treads in turret at rear of lower end of hall. Roof over house replaced
in C19 with nailed trusses. Shippon roof has five trusses halved and crossed at
apex lapped cambered collars, three collars at centre heavily cambered and much
higher almost at apex, presumably to provide more height at centre. All side
