House. Mid C17. One and a half storeys: basic two-cell plan, with a third unit added in C18. Timber-framed and plastered, with roof of straw thatch. Internal chimney-stack with plain red brick shaft. Windows of circa. 1950, including two square bays, one in the north gable, all with diamond-leaded lights. Two gabled dormers, one on the south slope of the roof, the other on the north. Framing exposed inside: widely-spaced studding with no middle rail and straight braces at the corners: in the north gable, an unusual combination of upward-sloping and primary braces, with bisected studs. Small chamfer to ceiling beams, and joists set on edge, all original tie-beams cut. Roof over C17 section renewed in early C19. A C19 flint and red brick lean-to extension on north, now used as a garage. A flat-roofed mid C20 extension on south. The building is set sideways-on to the road.
