Former farmhouse. Circa late C16 origins, remodelled and extended in the circa late
C18, rear addition of the 1960s. Colourwashed rendered cob and stone rubble; main
block with thatched roof, gabled at left end, hipped at right end rear wing slated;
end stacks, projecting rear lateral stack to main range, stack to rear wing at
junction with main range.
Plan: Present plan L shaped. The main block, facing the road is, in origin, a 3 room
and through passage plan, lower end to the right. In the circa late C18 a stair was
inserted into the passage and a rear right kitchen added at right angles to the lower
end which was presumably upgraded to a principal room. The house has been further
extended to the rear by a 1 room plan addition, adjoining the kitchen, possibly
converting an existing farmbuilding, and the wing concludes with a 1960s crosswing.
The partition between inner room and hall no longer exists.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with regular fenestration; half-
glazed 2-leaf front door to right of centre with a flat porch canopy on brackets. 2-
leaf C19 glazed French windows, one on either side of the front door; C19 2-light
small pane casement to left. The outer first floor windows are C20 16-pane sashes,
with centre windows C19 or C20 2-light casements with glazing bars. The right return
of the house has a doorway into the kitchen and a variety of C19 and C20 windows with
glazing bars.
Interior: The left hand room (formerly the hall and inner room) has deeply-chamfered
cross beams, one with a step stop showing. The right hand (lower end) room has a
plastered over crossbeam. Circa late C18 stick baluster stair in the former passage;
several late C18 2-panel doors on the ground and first floor. The former kitchen, to
the rear, has a chamfered cross beam and blocked fireplace with a bread oven.
Roof: Apex not inspected but the principals visible upstairs are of 2 dates, the
earliest are straight and may be C18; those over the left hand end of the house are
probably C20.
