Roughly coursed sandstone rubble with small quoins, stone
slate roof. Single-depth 2-unit plan on east-west axis facing

2 storeys and 3 windows, a long facade with small openings
grouped symmetrically towards the centre: a square-headed
doorway flanked by rectangular 2-light casements, and 3
similar casements above these (all apparently replacing
earlier fixed windows). Square corbelled chimney at left
gable, ridge chimney at junction to right. The barn continued

gable wall of the house has one window on each floor near the
front corner, and the side of the outshut has a doorway. Rear:
outshut under catslide roof, built back-to-earth.
