Former farmhouse. Early C17 and early C18, altered mid C20. 3-cell plan. 2
storeys. Timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roof with axial C17 chimney
of red brick with sawtooth shaft; pierced crested ridge tiles, and carved

casements, mainly renewed in C20. Glazed entrance door in a long pantiled
lean-to extension. The prominent parlour block has typical early C17 framing
with on-edge floor joists and close-studding (many studs are broad and
reused), and 3 open fireplaces; that serving the hall reuses for a lintel a
roll-moulded C16 beam carved with a trailing vine motif, punctuated with
bunches of grapes. The lower hall range was totally rebuilt in C18, and has
fully-exposed primary-braced studding.
