Farmhouse. Early C17, with additions of mid C19 and mid C19, some C20 alterations.
Painted granite rubble, slate roof coated with bitumen. The C17 range has a rear
lateral stack, C19 range has gable end stacks.
Circa early C17, the house appears to have been of 3-room plan, with hall and inner
room to left and lower end room to right; the hall heated by a rear lateral stack.
Probably in the C18, a single storey outshut was added to the end of the upper end.
Circa mid C19, a 2-storey block of 2-room plan was added at right angles to the lower
end, forming a new front to the right side ; this has a later single storey outshut
in the angle to the first range, and conceals the original entrance. In the C20, a
brick porch was added to the left end of the early range, in the angle with the C18
C19 front of 2 storeys and 3 windows, all of C20 with central double half-glazed
doors; roof hipped to right, with external stack truncated, wide external stack to
left end, with what appears to be a window opening at the top of the stack, blocked.
At the right side, the early C17 range of 2 storeys, with C20 window at first floor
to right and left, door to left and window to right at ground floor, central lateral
stack heating hall, in granite with circular oven at base, with ashlar top and
cornice and weatherings in moulded granite.
To end of early C17 range, a single storey rubble lean-to with stack. The left hand
gable end of this range has pigeon holes to left and a lean-to of circa 1800 with
small 2-light casement and C20 brick porch set in the angle. The rear of the C19
block has a single storey outshut in the angle to the C17 range with catslide roof
and C20 window to rear and side; this conceals what would have been the front of the
original house; this has a C20 window a ground floor left and first floor to centre.
Interior not inspected.
