Former farmhouse, C15. Now two cottages.

MATERIALS: Close-studded first-floor with rebuilt brick ground floor. Clay-tiled roof.

Doors are to the far left and right of the elevation and have arched Gothic doorcases.

* Architectural interest: the building is a well-preserved example of a substantial continuous jetty house.
* Historic interest: the building displays late medieval vernacular building traditions, as well as later historic fabric of interest, such as the substantial ridge stack and Gothic style windows and doors.
