Farmhouse. Dated 1769, extended in C19. Granite rubble rendered at rear.
Dry slate roof gabled at right hand higher end and hipped at lower left hand
end. Three room plan with wide passage/stair hall between hall and lower room.
Lateral stacks at rear of hall, smaller rear lateral stack to lower room, and
another at higher gable end. Dairy wing containing second stairs added to rear
of higher end and a lean-to outshut in the angle. The higher end room is possibly

the higher gable end. However, the internal partition between higher end room
and hall is of plastered stud construction and not of solid masonry to be expected

hipped slate roof and lean-to outshut in the angle, overlapping the hall stack.
Higher gable end of main range to north east has loft doorway. interior: Wide
passage hall with original framed dog-leg stairs at rear with moulded string
and handrail, turned balusters and square newels and with terminal column newel.
Some C18 fielded two-panel doors survive. Lower room has alcoves on either
side of blocked fireplace with panelled and fluted pilasters, kegblock in round
arch, and cupboards below with diagonal cross panels, and with dentilled cornice
to ceiling above. Lower room fireplace and hall fireplace blocked with C20
grates. Plastered stud internal partitions separating principal rooms. C19
