Farmhouse. Now house with former barn and stables attached, converted to form part
of dwelling. Early C16 or possibly earlier fabric concealed, remodelled in C17.
Whitewashed rendered rubble and cob. Slate roofs with gable end stacks, that to
left side is massive and heightened in brick. Originally an open-hall house with
floors and stack inserted in C17, the latter unusually creating a lobby entry
although it is possible that the present narrow lower end may have once formed a
cross-passage. The converted barn and stables adjoin to left end. 2 storeys.
North side has 2-window range, C20 single light to left and 2-light to right, 2-
panes per light. 3-window ground floor range of C19 2-light casements with inserted
fixed light at right end. 2 storey extension with lean-to slate roof to south side
projecting slightly at right end. Recessed C17 doorway to left with ovolo-moulded
surround with weathered stops. C17 3-plank ledged door to left of lobby entry with
cover strips and ovolo-moulded surround with scroll-stopped jambs. Chamfered beams
to hall and fireplace lintel. Twin scroll-stopped door surrounds at head of stairs
which enter the hall by a similar door surround with the durns facing the stairs.
Foliated plasterwork boss to inner wall of chamber above inner room. Heavy smoke-
blackening to rafters and part of purlins, but 3 trusses replaced.
