Right-hand house probably early C17 but altered, and extended to right in C18 or C19. Flint and rubble stone walls with some brick dressings. Hipped thatched roof; brick stacks along ridge.

Attic has ten dormers, five with lead lights, one with cast iron glazing, four with casements with glazing bars, C20 two storeyed rear extension in matching construction; also a small flat-roofed extension. Left hand section originally an end-hall house, with two-bay hall open to the roof, and service rooms on right. Hall floored over and stack inserted, early C17.
