HOUSE: coursed white-washed rubble with quoins, stone slate
roof. Single-depth plan on east-west axis, facing away from

small former outbuilding which links it to the barn. Two

2-window portion has a stone slate drip-course over the ground
floor starting approx. 1 metre from the left corner and
extending to the junction with the former outbuilding to the
right; a square-headed doorway in the centre (now enclosed by
a light C20 glazed conservatory), and two rectangular 2-light
casement windows on each floor, all with small-paned glazing.
(A former 1-light fire-window to the right at ground floor,
blocked and concealed externally, was formerly visible
internally.) The 1-window portion to the right, originally
single storey, has a stone slate course at the former eaves
level, a window and doorway at ground floor and another window
above and between these (both windows with glazing like the
other windows). Gable chimney to left, ridge chimney at
junction. Rear: marked difference in the masonry between
random rubble at ground floor and watershot coursed rubble
above; one narrow window at ground floor, a small

the side; 2 unequal square windows at 1st floor; stone slate
course over ground floor of 3rd unit, and a small square
window above this.
INTERIOR: housepart in 2nd bay has 2 chamfered lateral beams,
that to the right with bearers of a former smokehood, exposed
joists with scored decoration; large C18 rectangular stone
fireplace with moulded cornice; inserted partition to make

and an under-stairs cupboard which has a batten and board door
with a silver keyhole surround. Batten-and-board door at 1st
floor with stepped boards and strap hinges. Wall thickness at
