3 room and cross passage plan with kitchen at lower end on right, and heated wing at
rear of passage. Hall and inner room of near equal size. Original position of stair
2 storeys, regular 3-window front. Ground floor with 3 probably C20 2-light
casements with glazing bars below dressed stone segmental arches. C20 part glazed
door in dressed stone segmental arch asymmetrically placed nearer hall between first

probably C20 2-light casements with glazing bars. C19 outshut added on lower left-

Stone rubble wall to front of house enclosing small garden.
Higher Wringworthy Farmhouse illustrates an interesting plan for a probably early C19
building, adopting the traditional 3-room plan but having a large inner room parlour
the same size as the hall.
