Farmhouse, now house. Probably mid C17, with addition to front of circa C18,
alterations of C19 and C20. Slatestone rubble, roughcast. Thatched roof with gable
ends. Gable end stack to right, axial stack backing on to the passage and stack to
outer side of the wing to front left.
Plan: 3-room and through passage plan. The lower end room is to right, heated by a
gable end stack. The hall is to left of the passage, heated by an axial stack backing
on to the passage. The upper end room to left appears never to have been heated, and
contains a large stair hall and 2 small unheated store rooms to the rear. To the
front left is the parlour wing, heated by a stack to the outer side. This appears to
be of the original build. Probably in the C18, the house was made nearly symmetrical
by the addition of a 2-storey stable to the front right; the partition wall between
the lower end room and the stable seems to have been rebuilt. There is a small single
storey C20 addition to the rear of the passage and the hall.

studded door with fleur de lys strap hinges and thatched hood. 2-light casement to
right and 3-light casement to left. First floor has two 2-light casements with
eyebrow formers. The 2-storey wing to front right has a studded door with fleur de
lys strap hinges, probably re-used from elsewhere in the house; single light. 3-light
casement at first floor. The wing to left is also 2-storey, with C20 door to the
inner side. The front of the wing has 2-light casement at ground floor and 3-light
casement at first floor. At the right side, there is a C20 glazed double door; gable
end external stack with curved oven at the base, At the left side, the front wing has
an external stack; the gable end of the main range has 2-light casement at ground
floor and single light to the stair at first floor. At the rear, to left there is 3-
light casement at ground and first floor. C20 addition to rear of passage and hall.
To rear right, two single lights at ground floor and 2-light casement at first floor.
There is a straight joint by the passage, possibly the site of some rebuilding.
Interior: The lower end room has irregular-shaped chamfered and run-out stopped
beams. The gable end fireplace has a moulded timber lintel; there are 2 slits in the
back of the fireplace, which appear to continue into the flue, possibly for draught
control. Pot jack and cloam oven to left. Former smoking chamber to left of the
fireplace. There is a doorway from the room into the stable, which has concave
moulded and step-stopped frame; the wall appears to have been rebuilt, with an
internal window between the lower end room and the stable. The hall has a granite
fireplace, jambs and lintel chamfered with step stops; timber lintel set over the
granite lintel. The front left wing is the parlour, ceiled, with granite fireplace
with roll moulding and double step stop. The end room has a dog-leg stair, with re-
used C18 turned balusters; this may be the site of the original stair. At first
floor, there is a moulded lintel remaining over the blocked fireplace at the right
Roof: Much rebuilt, re-using some earlier timbers, including some principals formerly
with trenched purlins. Principal rafters crossed and pegged at the apex, with halved
