House, former farmhouse. Probably C16 core but rebuilt in early-mid C17 and late
C17-early C18. Plastered rubble walls with some cob towards top; rubble stacks with
C19 and C20 brick chimney shafts; roof is thatched to front and slate to rear. 3-
room-and-through-passage plan house facing south-east with inner room at left

stack to front of hall. Narrow late C17-early C18 stair block along rear of hall.
2 storeys. Regular 5-window front of late C19-early C20 large-pane casements with
glazing bars and C20 casements without glazing bars to ground floor. Roughly
central front passage door right of hall stack. Gable-ended roof.
Interior: early C17 features exposed in hall comprising 2 crossbeams with double
ovolo mouldings with step stops and large volcanic stone fireplace with oak lintel;
its jambs are ovolo-moulded but the lintel soffit is mutilated. A similar but
smaller volcanic stone fireplace in the inner room has been reduced in width and its
lintel replaced by a brick segmental arch, probably in C19. C18 or C19 inner room
crossbeam is roughly finished. Lower side of passage has early-mid C17 double ovolo

Late C17-early C18 roof comprising roughly-finished tie beam trusses with the tenon
