C18 and C20. Granite rubble walls with granite dressings. Grouted scantle slate

Plan: Long rectangular cranked-on-plan range. Originally probably 3 or 4 small

openings to the ground floor and 2 original C17 doorways. Other openings are C18 or
later but there is some reused C17 dressed masonry. Adjoining on the left is a
single storey (with same eaves level) front with 2 C17 window openings and later
leant-to at far left. Rear has 2 complete C17 window openings (far right and left),
some C18 openings and some C19 doorways.
Interior: Right-hand end is little altered since last occupied (circa 1900) and has
its original chamfered fireplace lintel spanning C18 jambs with a complete oven
behind the left-hand jamb. Floors and roof structure are C19.
This is a rare C17 building type in Cornwall and retains many of its original
