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.

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

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.
