and C20 alterations. Slatestone and granite rubble, partly rendered. Corrugated
asbestos roof with gable ends and gable end stacks with rubble shafts.
Plan: 2-room plan, with hall to left and kitchen to right, each room heated by gable
end stack; through passage. In the late C18, a stair was inserted in the passage,
and an outshut of 2 storeys was added along the whole of the rear, with unheated
dairy to left and kitchen to right.
Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical 3 window range; at first floor all 2 light 8-pane
casements with L hinges. Ground floor has central C20 gabled porch, with inner
panelled and gabled door with overlight. To left, 2-light casement with segmental
stone head, to right a 5-light casement with L hinges, 10-panes each light, and stone
segmental head. Left side rendered, with C20 2-light casement at first floor in the
outshut. Right side has straight joint to front of stack; it appears that the flue
was rebuilt. Outshut has ground floor C20 2-light casement, formerly door, first
floor 2-light casement with roughly hewn timber lintel. The rear is rendered, with
C20 window, door and 2-light casement to dairy, with single light to right. At first
floor a small 2-light casement and single light; at the right, the outshut is built
into the bank, with stone steps the right side.
Interior: Entrance passage has straight stair across the whole width; at the rear,
one jamb survives from a rear passage door, concealed in a cupboard below the stair.
Along the right side of the passage is a chamfered beam with step stop. Room to left
has fireplace with flat granite lintel and jambs, chamfered. Room to right has
wooden lintel to front window, plastered over. Dairy to rear left has slate floor
and slate table, rear right kitchen also has slate floor and formerly had fireplace
using the main flue at the gable end. At first floor, the chamber over the hall has
a granite fireplace with flat chamfered lintel and jambs. The feet of the principals
are visible at first floor, roof space not accessible; the roof appears to have been
reconstructed to incorporate the outshut, re-using at least one chamfered principal
