Farmhouse. C17. Timber framed with colourwashed render and a plain tile
roof. Two storeys. H-shaped roof plan. Drive front: gabled wing which is
flush with the axial range. This has a 3-light casement window to ground
floor and a 2-light casement to the first floor. To left of this the axial
range has, at far left a lean-to porch with a 2-light window. To right of
this at ground floor level is a 3-light C20 casement window and at right a
2-light window, with ovolo-moulded mullions. To the first floor above this
are two 2-light casements and one single-light casement, all of C20. To
left is a projecting gabled wing with a gambrel roof, single-storeyed with
attic, which may be a later separate cottage added to the earlier range
which was extended to join with it, accross the portion now occupied by the
staircase hall and masked externally by the porch in the re-entrant angle.
This wing has a lean-to with a pantile roof to the ground floor and two C20
single-light casements to the first floor. The left hand end has a C20
outshut with pantile roof. The right hand side has a porch with hipped
roof to the ground floor and 1/2-glazed door. Three-light casement to the
first floor of C20 date. Slightly to right of this is a lean-to with a
plank door at left. The rear has the projecting outshut at left with a
cross window and, to the axial range, a 3-light window at right, a doorway
at left and at first floor level three 2-light casement windows of C20
date. To right is a brick C20 outshut with hipped roof and there are two
2-light windows to the end of the gambrel roof.

Interior: Three-cell baffle-entry plan to the older portion with winder
staircase rising from the lobby and continuing to the attic. Close
studding and wall posts to both floors with chamfered ceiling beams and
sill and wall plates. The present staircase hall shows the projecting
brick plinths of the gable end of the axial range and of the lower range
with gambrel roof, and shows weathering to the timbers as if formerly
external walls.
