Farmhouse, now offices. Probably early C17; altered. Timber
frame on stone plinth, with brick infilling partly rendered
and all painted white; roof part slate and part corrugated
asbestos sheet. Irregular L-shaped plan formed by 3-bay main
range on east-west axis with short gabled projections to the
north side of the centre and east bays, and a 2-bay crosswing
at the east end projecting to the south. Two storeys; 3-bay
north elevation with small central gable flanked by large wing
gables; high stone plinth; exposed wall posts, intermediate
posts and rails with angle braces, mostly of light scantling
except in the centre where the timber appears to be applied,
including a king-post gable truss with raked struts, whereas
the wings have collars and raked struts. The left gable has an
inserted doorway to the right, a small 4-pane sashed window
above this, and a gable chimney; the centre has one altered
window on each floor; and the right-hand gable has a 4-light
casement at ground floor and an altered window above. The east
side (to the street) is stepped in at the gable end, has
coupled altered windows at ground floor and a pair of 2-light
casements at 1st floor with leaded glazing, a narrow 2-storey
gabled porch to the left with a doorway at ground floor and a
small 2-light casement at 1st floor, and a large external
chimney stack attached to the left of the porch. The rear of
the main range has irregular framing making three wide bays,
with various altered or inserted windows, and a doorway to the
3rd bay with studded batten-and-board door; the south end of
the wing has been rebuilt in brick, painted in imitation of
timber-framing. Interior: 3 structural bays with exposed
wall-posts and principal-rafter roof trusses with raked struts
and wind-braces to the purlins; C17 stop-chamfered ceiling
beams and joists; 3rd bay altered as galleried entrance hall,
probably in C19, with C17-style dog-legged staircase and
C17-style muntin-and-rail panelling; similar panelling on both
floors of centre bay; stone chamber fireplace in wing.
