slate dressings. Steeply pitched asbestos tile roof with gabled ends,
overhanging verges and eaves with exposed rafter ends. Lateral stack at the
back with 2 rendered diagonally-set shafts and stack at right hand end with
short brick shaft, both with louvred yellow clay pots.
Plan: 2-room plan with central entrance hall with dog-leg stack at the
back, living room to the right and parlour to the left with a cellar below
entered via an external doorway at the left end where the ground is lower.
The kitchen is in a short wing behind the right hand living room and was
raised to 2 storeys in the late C20 to provide a third bedroom.
Tudor Gothic style.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window west front. Slightly advanced
2-storey bays to left and right with stringcourses, the right hand gabled
and the main roof carried down over the left hand bay. Original chamfered
window openings with segmental dressed slate arches and weathered sills, the
original windows replaced by plastic windows. Central doorway with gabled
stone porch approached by flight of steps; the porch has a chamfered 2-
centred arch and low weathered buttresses; inside the porch an inner arch
and a plank door. The left hand (north) end has buttresses with weathered
set-offs on the corners and a wide cellar doorway with a chamfered dressed
slate segmental arch, no ground floor window and a first floor window in a
similar chamfered opening with C19 2-light casement with glazing bars. The
right hand end has one small first floor casement, probably inserted later.
At the rear the single storey kitchen wing has been heightened to 2 storeys,
it has a gable-ended roof and is rendered.
Interior Simple interior. Dog-leg stiarcase with stick balusters and
chamfered newel with moulded cap. Simple 4-panel doors. The chimneypieces
