Timber lintels. Grouted scantle slate roof with large ivy-clad chimney over right-
hand (east) gable end. External lateral breast to rear of left-hand room and further
later lateral brick chimney over front wall left.
Plan of 2 rooms flanking very wide entrance hall serving as through passage but doors
not opposite and with stair against back wall. Circa C18 or early C18 lean-tos to
rear, right (east).
2 storeys. Irregular 3-window south front. Doorway left of middle with 4-panel door
with flush-beaded bottom panels. Small window openings to left and right of door,
left-hand one cut late. Lean-to left blocks original window position. C20 window in
original wide opening to right. First floor has circa early C19 2-light casements
with 8 panes per light except left-hand one with 9 panes per light. Rear doorway
right (west within C20 porch was window).
Interior is simple with roughly chamfered beams and original floors, partitions and
roof structure with feet of trusses showing, C19 stair.
Empty at time of survey this house has survived little altered since the C19 and
contains much original structure.
Its unaltered rear elevation including the later outshuts is an important feature.
