Farmhouse; right-hand end converted to cottage. C17 with C19 additions at rear.
Solid roughcast walls, probably of cob or stone. Slated roof, hipped at right-hand
end. Small rendered chimneystack on each end wall. On ridge, off-centre to right,
a large granite chimneystack of C17 with thatch weatherings and cap formed by a
projecting slate-course just below the top. Plan considerably re-modelled in late
C19, but appears to be basically of 3-room ground plan with narrow rooms inserted at
the rear. 2 storeys, with single storey lean-to at rear, to right. 5-window front.
C19 wood casements with small panes. House doorway in second bay from left, cottage
doorway in second bay from right. Gateway into rear courtyard from lane on left-
hand side has a granite shaft as its left jamb. This is a single piece of stone,
chamfered on all 4 sides with convex stops at the foot; it may be part of a medieval
cross and is said to have come from Ilsington churchyard.
Interior is late Victorian in character, but has chamfered upper floor beams in
ground storey. Right-hand ground storey room of house part has a tiled fireplace
said to be one of the earliest of its type produced by Candy Potteries at
Heathfield. Roof space not inspected, but trusses have plain feet visible in
upstairs rooms. In lean-to addition at rear is a large water-trough made from a
single piece of granite. The house probably has early features concealed under
