House. C17 or possibly earlier extended in C19. Plastered cob and rubble walls.
Thatch roof to lower range hipped at end and gabled tile roof to C19 wing. 2 brick
axial stacks - 1 to thatched range and one to the C19 wing where the 2 parts of the
house meet.
Plan: L-shaped plan with older range running east-west down the slope. This was
probably 3 rooms originally, possibly with a cross passage but an axial stack now
divides the 2 main rooms and the lower end has been subdivided. At the front of its
higher end a circa mid C19 wing has been added consisting of 3 rooms in a row.
Exterior: 2 storeys. L-shaped front C19 range projecting to left has regular 3
window front of C19 3:2:3 light small-paned casements on first floor. Below of are 2
4-light French windows each in a bay. Between them is a C20 glazed door in a small
porch. Older range projects from right-hand end considerably lower with 3 window
front. Consisting of small C20 2-light casements on first floor, the 2 right-hand
one dormers. On the ground floor are 2 fixed small-paned lights to the left. To
their right is an C18 2-light wooden mullion window. The thatch extends down in a
catslide over the right-hand part of this range forming a pentice for an open porch
with a C19 plank door behind. Lower C19 single storey outbuilding attached at right-
hand end.
Interior: inaccessible at time of survey but likely to contain features of interest
such as open fireplace, ceiling beams and possibly early roof timbers.
