Farmhouse. Mid-C17 with C19 additions, partly remodelled by G. Birdwood
Willcocks in late 1930s. Regularly coursed limestone rubble with ashlar front;
artificial stone slate roofs with coped verges. Basic T-plan comprising 3-unit
baffle-entry main range and probably slightly later rear range with late C19
single-storey additions attached to left gable end of main range and at an
oblique angle to rear range. 2 storeys and attic. Main range has slightly
irregularly spaced 3-window front; chamfered 3-light mullions with dripstone and
1930s leaded lights. Infilled openings on each floor to right of left windows
formerly had 2-light mullion windows. Three C20 gabled dormers in middle of roof
slope. Entrance to right of centre window has dripstone and C20 plank door.
Ridge stack directly above and integral end stacks to left and right, all with
dripstones and moulded capping. Right gable end has chamfered rectangular
windows with dripstones to first floor and attic. 3-light mullion window with
moulding similar to those at Chastleton House (q.v.) to back wall, ground floor,
and similar window to right wall of rear range, ground floor, both with
dripstones. Interior. Much altered 1930s and subsequently. Room to left of
entrance (formerly 2) has boxed cross beams and open fireplace with chamfered
wood lintel to right wall; infilled inglenook fireplace to left. Chamfered spine
beam to ground-floor of rear range. 1930s addition in angle to rear on right is
not of special architectural interest.
