Farmhouse. Possibly late C16 with a mid C19 extension. Local stone rubble,
rendered on front. Slate roof with gable ends with second parallel range to rear
with half hipped end on right and hipped end on left. Corrugated asbestos roof to
wing on rear right with gable end. Brick stack on left hand gable end, rendered rear-
lateral stack in central valley heating left hand room of front range. Gabled stone
rubble rear lateral stack heating right hand room on rear.
The arrangement of the original plan is uncertain. The earlier remains appear to
comprise the range which is of 1-room plan and heated by a gabled rear lateral stack
and a single storey wing of 1-room plan to rear right, built into barn as ground
rises on rear. This wing is apparently unheated and its original use is uncertain
although the right hand side wall has a ventilation slit and the left hand side wall
has been partly rebuilt in the C20. It is possible however that this rear wing was
originally heated by the lateral stack which now heats the room in front, the
fireplace thus having been reorientated. Additionally the weathering on the stack
indicates the earlier higher roof height of the rear wing. In circa mid C19 a front
range of 2 room plan with central entrance was added across the front and it is
possible that the rear range was extended on the left in the mid C19, contemporary
with the front extension.
2 storeys. Regular 3-window front with 2 tall 16-pane sashes on the ground floor
with C19 hood moulds and a C20 glazed brick porch in the centre. 3 small 16-pane
sashes on first floor. Right hand side wall of rear range has 4-light mullion window
on the ground floor, the central king mullion surviving and the 2 outer mullions
removed. 3-light mullion window on first floor with mullions removed.
Interior remodelled largely in C19. Room on front right has a C19 chimneypiece and
the earlier range to rear has a C20 grate served by the rear lateral stack.
First floor and roof structure not accessible.
