House, formerly a farmhouse. Early C17, remodelled in early and later Cl9. Roughcast
stone rubble slate roof with gabled ends and late C19 crested ridge tiles. Rendered
stacks at gable end and at rear.
Two-room-plan house, originally with through passage and kitchen to left with gable
end stack and parlour to right with rear lateral stack and a stair turret at rear of
the kitchen. It may have had a third (inner) room to right. In circa early C19 the
first storey and roof were raised and the passage widened into a stair hall. Probably
later in the C19 a two-storey outshut was built at the rear of the parlour; it
contains the kitchen and has a rear lateral stack.
Two storey. Symmetrical three-window range. C19 16-pane sashes, ground floor larger
first floor centre narrower 12-pane sash. Central early C19 panelled door and large
late C19 or early C20 glazed porch. Large projecting stack at left gable end with set
offs. Former stair turret at rear right and two-storey outshut at rear left with
lateral stack and late C19 cantilevered room in the angle to right.
Interior: much of the C19 joinery survives including panelled doors and staircase with
turned newel,Steep balusters and open string with st-raped tread ends. Parlour to right
has early C19 panelled door flanked by round-headed niches with moulded architraves,
and rear lateral fireplace blocked by C20 fireplace. Left hand room, the kitchen,
has open fireplace with oven and ovolo moulded timber lintel reset at lower level.
Roof space not inspected, but it is unlikely to contain pre-Cl9 trusses.
