Farmhouse. Probably mid to late C17, altered internally in C19 and extended in late
C20. Granite rubble with dressed granite quoins, lintels and door and window frames.
Asbestos slate roof with gable ends. Gable end stacks with weathered dripcourses and
tapered caps, the right hand stack is much larger.

kitchen to the right heated from a gable end stack; the smaller room at the lower
left end is also heated from a gable end stack. At the rear 2 shallow unheated rooms

between the left hand room and the shallow rear room to form one large room.

and the room in the rear outshut have been removed to make one large room. Late C19
