Farmhouse. Late C16 or early C17 heavily remodelled in C18 with C19 additions.
Stone rubble and possibly cob walls, rendered at the front. Slate roof gabled to
right end hipped to left. 3 brick stacks - 1 at each end and 1 axial, and stone
ashlar rear lateral stack with moulded cap.
Plan: due to restricted access the plan is not entirely clear but almost certainly

outshut added.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 5-window front of late C18 or early C19 12-pane
sashes of which the left-hand ones have rusticated plaster architraves. Central
gabled C19 porch which has a re-used or reproduction 4-centred stone archway with a
C19 panelled door behind. Rusticated plaster quoins at either end of front wall.
C19 slightly lower addition at left-hand end. At rear is slight projection to
centre adjoining hall stack and outshut to the left, the extension at the other end
projects slightly.
Interior: inaccessible at time of survey - C16/C17 features likely to have been
concealed by C18 remodelling but good quality C18 plasterwork and joinery may be
