Farmhouse. Early C19. Stone rubble, partly slate-hung, partly colourwashed and
rendered. Slate roofs gabled at ends, brick stacks. An unusual plan for the date
with a 2 room and wide passage plan single depth main range, the partition to the
passage removed on one side with gable end stacks and a gabled front projection
containing the stair. The main range is extended at either end by symmetrical l-bay
wings under a slightly lower roof line the wings being heated at the outer gable
ends. The wings appear to be contemporary with the main range. 2 storeys.
Symmetrical 5-bay front, the wings slightly narrower than the 3-bay main range which
is slate-hung to the first floor. Front door on left return of the gabled
projection. Most of the C19 fenestration remains intact: two 2-light casements 8-
panes per light to ground floor left, on the right-hand side these have been replaced
with a 4-pane horned sash and a 2-light casement, 4-panes per light under a segmental
head. First floor window left is a 2-light sliding sash, 6-panes per light, other
first floor windows 2-light casements 6-panes per light. The gabled projection has a
1-light 6-pane stair window. On the rear elevation facing the farmyard 1 casement
window has been replaced by a 4-pane horned sash, otherwise all the C19 casements
with glazing bars remain intact.
Interior Contemporary early C19 stair with stick balusters. An attractive small
early C19 farmhouse with an unusual plan.
