House. Probably circa late C17 with C20 rear extension. Roughcast stone
rubble. Thatched roof with half hipped ends. Gable end stacks, right hand
end projects and has a slate weathered set-off, and an axial stack to right
of centre; all with rendered shafts.
Plan: 3-room plan. The ground is higher at the right end. The end rooms
are heated from gable end stacks and the centre room has an axial stack at
the right hand end. It is not certain whether there was ever a passage
between the left and centre rooms but there is now direct entry into the
centre room at the front. The right may be a later addition; according to
the owner it was formerly a stable with a loft above. In the late C20 a
staircase was built at the left hand end of the central room and a single
storey addition was built at the back.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window range. Al late C20 2 and 3-
light casements without glazing bars. The doorway to the left of centre
has a C20 plank door and a C20 lean-to porch.
At the back a late C20 flat-roof single storey extension.
Interior: Light scantling closely-spaced chamfered ceiling beams. C20
staircase missing from centre room which has a fireplace at the opposite
right end with a rough timber lintel.
Roof: The roof space was not inspected, but one principal with a straight
foot is exposed at the first floor.
