Farmhouse. Circa early C19 extended in circa mid to late C19. Stone rubble. Slate

later range on left. Brick axial and side lateral stacks.
Plan: Double depth range to earlier range on right with central entrance flanked by

plan with a second entrance leading into a passage on the right and a principal room
to front left, heated by a side lateral stack, with a further room beyond to rear.
Exterior: Two storeys. 2-3 window front. The symmetrical 3-window front to the
earlier right hand range has a central timber and rendered porch with flat roof and
C19 panelled door within. Two C19 12-pane sashes on ground floor and three above
with dressed slate segmental arches. To left, the higher gabled end to the circa mid
to late C19 extension; two storeys and attic with brick segmentai arches to the
openings. Part glazed plank door to right and C19 six over nine-pane sash. Two C19
12-pane sashes on first floor and 1-light window to attic.
Interior: Largely complete with mid and late C19 joinery and carpentry details.
