Exterior: 3-window front is symmetrically arranged around the front doorway which has
a gabled porch with a Tudor arch doorway (red brick with limestone imposts and
keystone) containing the original part-glazed plank door. Windows have low segmental

sashes. Roof is gable-ended to right. To left the rear block continues to a front
gable. This gable and the porch gable have cusped bargeboards.
Interior: not inspected.
From the right end of the front an original stone rubble wall projects southwards
across the front of the farmyard. It includes a gateway; plan square section gate

farmyard wall is enclosed by original cast iron railings; plain railings and bulbous

This was a Rolle estate village. The big house in the parish, Stevenstone Court
(q.v.), now ruined, was rebuilt in 1872-3. The whole village, including the Church
of St Giles (q.v.) was remodelled shortly afterwards.
