Farmhouse. Early/mid C17, late C17 and C19, Coursed squared marlstone with
limestone dressings; marlstone and limestone rubble with wooden lintels;
Stonesfield-slate, Welsh-slate and artificial stone-slate roofs with ashlar and
brick stacks. L plan, partly infilled. 2 storeys. 3-window late-C17 marlstone
front, with chamfered plinth and moulded wooden eaves cove, has a 6-panel door
set to left of centre below a flat panelled canopy; to right at both floors are
pairs of stone-mullioned windows with transoms, but to left are larger 3-light
windows, with renewed wooden mullions and transoms and with wooden lintels. The
heads of the ground-floor windows are linked by a continuous moulded string. To
extreme left and right at first floor are rectangular stone panels containing
moulded ovals, probably intended for plaster or terracotta reliefs; there is a
similar panel on the right return wall. Both end walls have a small window with
a chamfered stone surround, and have gable parapets with projecting kneelers and
triangular copings with an apex roll. Right gable stack retains a pair of ashlar
diagonal shafts. Long rear wing, returning from left end, is probably earlier
and has casements with heavy stop-chamfered lintels; a lower granary bay at the
end has a 3-row gable dovecote and an external stone stair. Added C19 range
parallel to main range, is in coursed limestone rubble with flat arches.
Interior: Panelled doors and shutters in main range are all c.1800.
