Farmhouse. Probably early C17, partly remodelled in mid to late C18 and in mid C19.
Stone rubble with granite quoins. Rag slate roof with gable ends. Stone rubble end
Plan: Original arrangement uncertain. Front range of two room and cross passage plan
with larger room on left; both rooms heated by end stacks. There is a circa mid to
late C18 stair to rear of the passage and a small room to rear of the right hand
room. The one-room plan wing to rear of left hand room is heated by an end stack and
has a cloam oven projection.
Exterior: Two storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-window front. C20 glazed door flanked by
C19 or C20 20-pane sash and C19 16-pane sash; all ground floor openings with brick
segmental arches. First floor with two 16-pane sashes flanking a 12-pane sash. In
the gable end on right is a granite roundel with a cross carved in relief. It
appears to be carved with initial '-D' and date 1823.
Interior: Left hand room has a chamfered and ogee stopped timber lintel to fireplace
with ashlar jambs. The ceiling beams have been replaced probably in the C20. In the
rear wing the earlier beams survive with a large chamfered but unstopped cross beam
with rough unmoulded floor joists. Remains of granite surround to fireplace with
hollow chamfered jambs with ball and pyramid stops. Circa C18 stair with simple
turned newels and ramped deep moulded rail. Balusters possibly partly replaced.
