Farmhouse. C16 core, C19 casing. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed, encased

walls have blue headers. Black glazed pantiles. Mid-C19 crow-stepping to both
gables and the 2-storey porch on the east (garden) front. One internal and
one rear stack, both with 2 octagonal shafts, moulded bases and starred caps
(cf. Ashtree House, Item 5/60). C20 replacement windows: part 3-light mullion-
and-transome type, part small-paned sash style with top-opening lights. 2
doors on west side with 4 flush panels; a 6-panelled door with raised fielded
panels to the porch on the garden side. 2 gabled dormers with fluted
bargeboards. Basic 3-cell internal chimney plan. The interior has some
exposed timbering and one ground-floor ceiling has a heavy main beam and
