House. Probably late C16 ; remodelled circa mid C19, with some later alterations.
Slatestone rubble. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends. Gable end stacks
with brick shafts.
Plan: The present house is a C19 2-room plan, with partition wall removed to form one
large room at ground floor ; this is probably as original, as the house appears to be
a fragment of a formerly larger house. One room, heated from a gable end stack to
right, the fireplace at the left end inserted later. The front wall was probably
rebuilt circa mid C19.
Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical 2-window front. Ground floor has central glazed and
gabled porch with inner C20 door ; plate-glass sash to right and left. First floor
has 2 C19 4-pane sashes. Right side rendered, with large external stack. Rear has
C20 glazed door and C20 metal-framed window at ground floor.
Interior: 2 heavy chamfered beams remain at ground floor, chamfered, with scroll
stops. Recess in rear wall with timber lintel, chamfered with hollow step-stops.
The inserted fireplace at the left end has chamfered granite lintel, probably re-
used. Large fireplace at the right end in granite, with roll-mouldings, formerly
with oven to rear left. Slate floor throughout. At first floor, the feet of the
principal rafters are boxed. In the roof, 2 trusses remain, the principals halved
and pegged at the apex, and cambered below the collars. The collars are cambered and
chamfered, dovetailed joints to the principals. Trenched purlins.
