House. Probably early C18, late C19/C20 additions and some internal
replanning. Flemish bond brick to the ground floor, first floor tile-hung;
peg-tile roof; brick stack; slate roof to rear lean-to.

Plan: South facing. The original C18 arrangement was probably the 2-cell
present main block with a larger room to the right (east) heated from an end
stack and a smaller parlour to the left (west). The house has been extended
by a separately roofed block at the right (east) end and a rear lean-to.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2:1 window front, the one window to the
lower-roofed addition at the right end. Plank front door to left of centre
with a flat porch hood. 3-light small-pane casements, 2 to the first and 2 to
the ground floor, probably C19, except first floor right which is a plastic
replacement but probably in the original embrasure. The left hand ground
floor window has a segmental arched head. The addition at the right end has a
C20 door below a 2-light small-pane casement. Hipped roof; shaft of left end
stack dismantled. The rear elevation has 2 first floor probably C19 small-
pane casements and a gabled attic dormer.

Interior: Exposed carpentry in ground floor room right, mostly re-used
timbers. Open fireplace with a chamfered lintel. The left hand room has
replaced joists. C20 stair.

Roof: Not inspected.
