Exterior: Irregular 3-window front of timber casements with glazing bars, all 1986
replacements. The doorway is roughly central. It contains an old solid oak frame
and a plank door. The roof is gable-ended and steps down right of centre.
Interior is largely the result of a thorough renovation in 1986 of a previously
nearly derelict building. The only carpentry which was not replaced in 1986 is a
soffit-chamfered half beam across the front of the kitchen/hall chimneybreast. Both
fireplaces are built of granite ashlar. The right room, the parlour, fireplace is
the latest in style with its curving pentan; it is probably late C17. The
kitchen/hall fireplace has a hollow-chamfered surround and an inserted bread oven.
