House. Probably early to mid C18 (possibly remodelling earlier building),
enlarged in late C18 or early C19; altered. Coursed squared sandstone with
quoins, scored stucco facade, stone slate roof. L-shaped plan, formed by 3-
unit front range with addition to rear of right-hand half. Two storeys and
3 bays, with cellars; doorway offset slightly left of centre, with plain
surround, cellar doorway and window on lower level at left end; two 3-light
windows at ground floor and 3 above, all with flat-faced flush mullions and
plain surrounds; corniced chimney at left gable, a similar but larger chimney
on the ridge at the junction of the 2nd and 3rd units; gable copings with
moulded kneelers. Rear has inter alia a 3-light window at 1st floor and a
round-headed stairlight with tracery in the head. Addition, under cat-slide
roof, has one 3-light window on each floor (upper with one blocked light),
and a blocked taking-in door at the right-hand end.

Interior: evidence of remodelling includes exceptionally thick stone
partition wall between 2nd and 3rd units, wide and irregular entrance hall in
centre, fine dog-leg staircase rising from this, with open string, very
slender turned balusters and ramped handrail; and fielded panel doors, that
through the stone partition wall with H-L hinges.
