Farmhouse. A circa C18 remodelling and extension of an earlier house.
Stone rubble, whitewashed at front. Asbestos tile hipped roof. Large stone
rubble lateral stacks with tall shafts, one has rebuilt rendered shaft.

heated from a large central stack on the higher right side, the left hand
room possibly unheated and with a central entrance between the two rooms.
