House, now subdivided into 2 dwellings. Early C16 timber-framed hall encased
in stone mid C18 and C19 with mid-late C17 cross-wings. Large dressed stone
to east wing, smaller hammer-dressed stone to west wing and hall range, stone
slate roofs. 2 storeys. Hall and cross-wings plan, H-shaped. Wings each have
weathered plinth and moulded dripcourse, doorway with composite jambs and
chamfered surround to one side of 5-light double-chamfered mullioned window
with almost square reveals and 4-light window above with hoodmould. Coped
gables with kneelers and stone bases for apex finials (now gone). Hall range
has central doorway altered to window with, to either side on both floors, a
window with slightly recessed mullions and raised surrounds, those to ground

2 bays of C20 chamfered lights to each floor. Disturbed stonework to hall range

Interior: 2 1/2-bay hall of post-and-truss construction has rear close-studded wall
braced to wall-plate. Posts with jowelled heads support king-post trusses
without struts, braced to square-set ridge; single trenched purlins support
rafters of large scantling. The ridge stops short at the east end and there is
other evidence for the former existence of a fire-hood. East wing has king-post
truss with 8 vertical struts and another truss without struts buried in the front
gable wall straight-braced to ridge.

A rare survival in this region.
