Farmhouse. Probably C17 extended to rear in late C17 or early C18. Painted
roughcast rendered stone and some cob. Slate roof with gable end rubble stacks
Nearly symmetrical 2-room plan with heated rooms each side of wide through-passage
containing staircase. Probably in late C17 or early C18 a kitchen wing was added
to rear of right hand room and through-passage and forming overall L-shaped plan.
2 storeys. 3-window range. C20 3-light casements, 3 panes per light. Leanto
slate roof to porch with 4 panelled door, the upper 2 panels glazed.
Interior : largely altered in C19 with most of the joinery of this date intact.
Ceiling beam and bressumer with broad chamfers to right hand room, beams boxed in
to left hand room. One C17 stop-chamfered door surround to chamfer over right hand
room. Dairy fittings intact. No access to main roof space but the feet of 3
trusses with straight heavy principals suggest the C17 roof structure survives.
