Farmhouse with attached barn, now house and store. Probably
C17, remodelled and enlarged in later C17 or earlier C18, and
subsequently. Coursed rubble with quoins and some
through-stones, the front of the house painted white;
continuous stone slate roof. T-plan formed by a long
single-depth 2-unit main range on an east-west axis facing
north (probably formerly a longhouse with a through-passage),
with an added rear wing; and the barn continued to the west.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 2 widely separated windows, almost
symmetrical; with a discontinuous course of through-stones
over the ground floor to the left, a stone slate band on a
higher level to the right (perhaps former eaves), and a
quoined vertical junction visible in the centre of the 1st
floor. The ground floor has an unusual very wide gabled porch
with a pair of square-headed outer doorways separated by a
pier, 2 inner doorways, stone side-benches, and 3 pigeon holes
in the gable above; a small 6-pane fixed window to the left,
and an oblong 12-pane fixed window to the right (with an
opening pane in the top right corner). The 1st floor has
9-pane fixed windows, that to the right with a similar opening
pane. Corbelled chimney to left and another at the junction
with the barn to the right, the corbels visible in the barn.
Barn has garage doorway. Rear: very wide 2-storey gabled wing;
fire-window to west of that.
INTERIOR: very thick stone lateral partition wall with lintel
of former doorway next to rear wall; housepart to right has 2
chamfered lateral beams (2nd formerly a smokehood bressumer),
with exposed joists; parlour to left has fireplace with
corbelled lintel; collarless principal-rafter roof truss in
house and 2 similar trusses in barn.
