House. Circa early C17. Rendered and painted stone rubble and cob, hung with
asbestos slates on lower right hand side. Projecting stone rubble end stacks with
brick shafts and brick shaft to rear lateral hall stack.
Plan: Three room and cross passage plan with ground sloping down to the right. The
entrance is to the left of centre and thus unusually the hall is geographically lower
than the entrance. The left hand room is heated by an end stack, the hall by a rear
lateral stack and the inner room on right by an end stack. The 1-room plan circa C17
wing to the rear of the passage and hall may have originally been built as a stair
projection but is now used as a scullery. The 1-room plan wing to rear of the inner
room is heated by a large end stack and appears to be C19, although it is possible
that it has earlier origins, possibly as a service wing. C19 outshut to rear of left
hand room. The house was partly remodelled in the late C19 being divided into two
houses, the inner room and rear service wing occupied by one house and the hall,
passage and left hand room by another house.
Exterior: Two storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front with ground sloping down to
right. Entrance to left of centre with part glazed C20 door flanked by C19 24-pane
sash to left and C20 window lighting hall to right. Part glazed plank door to far
right. The ground floor windows and door to right have slate dripmoulds above the
openings. First floor lit by two C20 2-light casements with further 2-light casement
to right.
Interior: Early C20 stair inserted in passage and fireplaces blocked with C20
grates. Heavy chamfered floor joists with stepped stops in front range. Roof
structure not inspected.
