2 dwellings, formerly 1 farmhouse. Possibly late C16, with later alterations.
Coursed rubble under gabled-end slate roof. Formerly a 3-room, cross-passage plan,

stacks heat other main rooms, and in internal gable end stack heats wing; all with
brick shafts. 2-storeys.

light end window; C19 porch, slated and glazed, with 1 2-light casement window to
both floors to the right.
Right-hand elevation: 2-light casement windows to each floor to left of external end
stack; this stack has paired set-offs below shaft, and a single set-off at the eaves
level of the rear lower end wing, the 2 features being connected by a course of
edged brick, perhaps marking the site of a stair turret; clear masonry joint between
main range and wing; one 2-light window to each floor of this elevation of wing.

mould, now partly missing, 15 leaded panes per light and stanchions; C19 two-light
