House. Circa C15, remodelled and extended in C17 and with C19 and C20 alterations.
Timber frame, front and side faced in stone rubble. Slate roofs with gabled ends.
Gable-end stacks with later brick shafts and truncated lateral stack to rear wing.
Plan: The original front range of 2 rooms and central cross-passage was originally
open to the roof and heated from an open hearth fire. In C17 the eaves were raised
and floors and gable end stacks were-inserted and a 1-room plan wing with a lateral
stack was added behind the right hand room of the front range. Partly refaced in
stone in C18 and/or C19 and outshuts built at left end and in rear angle in C29.
2 storeys. Not quite symmetrical 2-window south east front with C20 3-light
casements and C20 door with canopy to right of centre. The north west side facing
road has various 2-light casements, some with cambered arches. Large framing is
exposed on rear elevation of main range and in gable of wing to left; C20 casements
French casement and outshut in angle on side of rear wing next to projecting oven.

Interior: Timber-framing exposed. Left hand room has chamfered framed ceiling;
right hand room has chamfered axial beam and rear wing, a deeply chamfered cross-
beam, both without stops, the rear wing with chamfered joists. All ground floor
rooms have stone fireplaces with timber lintels, that in rear wing with brick oven
Full cruck truss (like a spere-truss) on left side of passage with massive blades
and cambered collar halved and dovetail lap jointed to the principals, which are
smoke-blackened in the roof space. The early carpentery appears to be fairly
complete but the joinery is largely C20.
