Farmhouse, now house. Two builds: C16 or earlier, and mid C18; altered. The
earlier part of coursed squared sandstone and timber framing, the later of
sandstone ashlar and some hand-made brick, with stone slate roof to both.
T-plan formed by C18 single-depth front range with a rear wing, with the
earlier range continued to the rear of this. C18 element, facing west, of 2-
storeys and 3 bays, symmetrical, has 1st floor band, central doorway with
fielded-panel door, overlight, simply moulded architrave, and above this a
moulded cornice on the band; one window to the left, sashed without glazing
bars, and 3 similar windows at 1st floor, all with moulded sills and
architraves matching the door, and to the right at ground floor a large
French window with matching architrave (but altered glazing); gable copings
with kneelers, and gable chimneys. South side of contemporary rear wing, of
2 bays in matching style, a former doorway next to the angle altered as a
window, and the other windows all casements (altered): north side has, inter
alia, a 2-storey porch in the angle, but is of less interest; and the exposed
rear gable wall, of brick with stone quoins, has stone coping with kneelers
and a gable chimney. Earlier portion: of 2 lower storeys and 2 bays; the
north side, of stone at ground floor, and close-studding at 1st floor, has an
inserted doorway near the left end, a buttress to the right of this and 2
altered or inserted windows to the 2nd bay; at 1st floor, which is set back,
posts and studs of equal scantling, the studs set in a sill (or rail, if
ground floor masonry is cladding to similar framing), a concave brace to the
left end of the 1st bay, similar braces at each end of the 2nd bay, and a
framed-in window in each bay (differing). Steeply-pitched roof, with chimney
stack approx. 1 metre from east gable wall, which is of stone, with raised
coping and kneelers. Rear (south side) also of stone, with altered openings.
Interior: the earlier range has 2 crass-frames of close-studding, with
concave braces from tie-beams to wall posts, that at the junction with the
later build with 2 C18 fielded panel doors inserted at 1st floor; beams and
joists of large scantling; and a deep chimney stack (fireplace concealed).
The C18 build has a fine dog-legged staircase with open string, 2 slender
turned balusters per tread, and ramped handrail; and panelling and fielded-
panel doors.
