Farmhouse. C17 core, circa mid C19 remodelling. The C17 wing colourwashed and
rendered, the C19 block probably brick, colourwashed and stuccoed. Asbestos slate
roofs, gabled at the end of the C17 wing which has a projecting stone gable end stack
and a stack on the ridge. The roof of the C19 block is hipped with rendered stacks
at ends. The C17 core was probably a 3 room and through passage house of which the
inner room and hall with stack backing on to a passage survive. In the mid C19 a new
block was built at right angles to the old house and the C17 hall functioned as a
kitchen to the C19 house. 2 storeys. 3-bay front elevation with a central porch
under a sloping slate roof. The porch is rusticated with vermiculated keystones over
the round-headed outer door and 2 round-headed windows in the returns, and formerly
had a battlemented parapet. 4-panel front door and porch windows with margin glazing
and coloured glass borders. Window above porch is a 12-pane sash, 16-pane sashes to
outer bays. A 2-storey lean-to addition at the right end is 1-bay with 16-pane
sashes. The rear wing has 3-light casement windows with glazing bars.
Interior The partition wall between the hall and inner room of the C17 wing no
longer exists. Large hall fireplace with a timber lintel concealed behind a later
lintel. Roof trusses over the C17 wing pegged, probably early C19. The C19 block
has a contemporary stair with stick balusters.
