House. Circa late C17 - early C18, with alterations and additions of C19 and C20.
Painted stone rubble. Asbestos slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends. Gable
end stack to left and axial stack to right with C20 brick shafts.
Plan: 2-room plan; the larger room to left was the kitchen, heated from a gable end
stack to left. Smaller parlour to right, heated from a gable end stack, with passage
between the 2 rooms. Circa C19 a shippon with loft was added at the right end, with
doorway to front. The shippon is now part of the house.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 3-window front. First floor has three C20 2-light
2-pane casements. Ground floor has plank door with glazed panel set off-centre to
right. Two 3-light 3-pane casements to left of C19 and one C19 2-light 3-pane
casement to right, all with timber lintels. The shippon is to right, the doorway
with 6-pane window inserted and timber lintel; two C20 rooflights. At the left end
is a stepped external stack with a curved oven at the base. Single 2-pane casement
at first floor to right. The right end has C20 door to left. At the rear, there is
a C20 door and 2-pane window to left, with small single light at the rear of the
passage and C20 window with timber lintel to right. At the rear of the shippon is a
3-pane C20 window.
Interior: The gable end fireplaces have been rebuilt in C20. The room to right has
C19 ceiling beams and the room to left had narrow-chamfered beams. The rest of the
house may retain other interesting features, such as early joinery, including doors.
