Farmhouse, now house. Circa mid C16 origin, with mid C17 rear wing to right;
refronted mid C18, with later alterations. Granite rubble, partly rendered, with
granite ashlar stack to rear wing. C20 slate and asbestos slate roofs with gable
ends. Gable end stack to right and rear lateral stack to rear wing, and rear lateral
stack to hall. This appears to have been originally a 2-room and through passage
plan, with the hall/kitchen to right and unheated room to left, used as a dairy. The
original rear passage door remains, front entrance replaced by a window. A parlour
wing was built to the rear of the hall, enclosing the hall's rear lateral stack, in
the late C17 ; this is of one-room-plan, heated by stack to outer (right-hand) side;
later used as a granery at first floor. In the mid C18, a third room was added to
the right hand end, and a new entrance passage inserted in the right-hand end of the
hall/kitchen. This created a nearly symmetrical front. Original stair site
uncertain, with C18 straight stair inserted along the outer side of the rear wing.
The C18 passage has solid wall to right, formerly external wall, and stud partition
to hall/kitchen ; ceiling beams in hall/kitchen continue over passage.
2-storeys; first floor has five 16-pane sashes under eaves, ground floor has four 12-
pane sashes, with central 4-panelled door with overlight, forming a symmetrical
front. Ground floor windows have granite lintels, all chamfered except 1 to right;
window to left formerly door. Dairy to end left has a ventilation window. Gable end
stack to right, no evidence of any stack to left gable end, more regular granite
quoins to right end, indicating later rebuilding. The left end is rendered, with
single light at ground floor and 4-pane sash at first floor. Right gable end in
rubble, rear of right end rendered with single C20 light under eaves. The rear wing
is of 2 storeys, in 2 builds, with slightly lower roof level at junction with main
range. At right (outer) side there is a 9-pane light at first floor, and to right an
external stack in granite ashlar with moulded string and cap, brick chimney. Single
storey rubble lean-to at base of stack, with narrow stack to hall. splayed light at
outer end and loading door to side. Gable end wall of wing rendered. The left
(inner) side of the wing has 2 C20 windows at ground floor and 3 at first floor,
narrow single light with splayed granite reveal at ground floor to right. The rear
of the main range has a rear lateral stack in rough granite ashlar, with moulded
string and slate weatherings. Single storey rubble lean-to along rear of hall and
dairy with 2 C20 windows and door; this conceals the rear door to the hall.
Interior : The hall has 2 large chamfered cross beams, 1 to end left with mortices,
although with no space for a door to have been set in ; 7 beams with scratch-moulded
decoration. The dairy is ceiled, with slate floor and shelves, stone corbel on front
wall supporting post. Deep splayed reveal to front and rear window. The rear door to
the hall, concealed by the rear lean-to, is in granite, chamfered with 4-centred arch
and pyramid stops. Hall fireplace blocked, with oven to rear. Door to passage is 4-
panelled, passage has granite floor. End room to right has slate floor and rough-
hewn granite lintel to fireplace at gable end. Passage has moulded beam as in hall.
Rear wing has straight stair against right wall, end room in wing has fireplace of
circa 1800, in granite with plain pilasters and moulded mantel; 4 panelled door. On
the outer wall of the wing, the lean-to conceals-granary door, and small single light
with timber lintel to left and right. The roof over. the wing is of 5 bays, with
straight principals, halved and pegged, with cambered collars pegged to the faces of
the principals, 2 rows of purlins, some later replacements. In the main range, there
is a passage along the rear of the house, and there are 3 front rooms divided by
plastered stud walls.
