Farmhouse. C17, remodelled and extended in the early C19. Cob, with some stone and
brick, plastered, under gabled end slate roof. Formerly a 3-room, cross-passage

porch (set right of centre) where there is a round-headed 2-light casement window
with margin panes; porch with canopy, moulded and pierced with roundels and
diamonds, set on round posts; pilaster quoins and below the moulded gutter box a
raised frieze of possibly plaster fleurons: open timber bellcote at centre on ridge,
with pyramidal roof with finial.
Left-hand elevation: main range, barge boarded, with a blocked round headed window
to gable wall; 2 and 3-light casement windows to wing. Inner face of this wing with
three 3-light casement windows, 10 leaded panes per light.
