Farmhouse. Early C17 modernised in later C20. Rendered, mainly cob walls with some
rubble. Asbestos slate roof gabled to left, hipped to right. 2 axial brick stacks.
C20 projecting lateral stack to rear.
Plan: unusual plan of 4 rooms in a row - the right-hand one for storage purposes
with external access - with a cross entry (rather than separate passage) through the
centre right-hand room; integral dairy behind the room to its left which was the
hall. Hall stack backs onto entry. Room to its right with entry through it was
probably the kitchen. Unheated inner room at left-hand end. The store room at the
right-hand end had access only to the yard on the 1st floor.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with lower C19 addition at left-
hand end. Late C20 small-paned 3-light casements with small gable over 1st floor
window to left of centre. Right-hand part of house has lower roof line. Leanto
addition to rear at right of centre with glazed door.
Interior: kitchen has granite framed fireplace, chamfered, with pyramid stops to
jambs. Hall has similar fireplace. Adjoining it at the rear is a short section of
plank and muntin screen. The rear partition to the dairy is of studs, grooved for
flush plaster, with a cranked head door frame. There is a similar 1st floor
partition above. Hall has framed ceiling of chamfered beams with bar and step stops
at the intersections.
Roof: one face-pegged clean jointed cruck survives over the hall.
