(Formerly Listed as:


Farmhouse, now house. Probably late C17 or early C18, with
additions and alterations dated 1883 (over present front
doorway) and 1899 (on added porch). Roughly-coursed mixed
rubble, the earlier portion mostly blue ragstone, with
sandstone quoins, stone slate roof. Formerly T-plan formed by
single-depth 2-unit main range on north-south axis, with broad
gabled wing overlapping junction of bays on west side;
enlarged in C19 by addition full-height outshut to north of
this including added outbuilding at north end, and curved
porch in angle to south.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and cellar, 3:2 windows to the west
elevation, the 3-window portion being the added outshut. This
has a doorway abutting the junction with the wing (datestone
above lintel lettered "J.N. 1883"), another doorway at the
left end and 3 narrow windows on each floor between these. The
gable of the wing has irregular fenestration: a square 15-pane
fixed window offset left at ground floor, a 16-pane tilting
casement stair-window slightly above to the right, a similar
window at a higher level to the left and a 12-pane
stair-window above the other one. In the angle to the right is
a curved porch in free Gothic style, with a round-headed
doorway, datestone lettered "T H / 1899", roll-moulded run-out
imposts with small square windows over them, and a
quarter-conical blue slate roof. Ridge chimney in line with
wing, gable chimneys at both ends, that to the south extruded.
Rear (east elevation), 2:3:2 windows, the 2-window south bay
slightly projecting, with quoins to both corners; rectangular
windows with glazing bars (those at 1st floor of the south bay
with smaller panes).
INTERIOR: housepart (present centre bay) has massive inglenook
bressumer and muntin-and-plank heck, and similarly panelled
partition to wing; plaster on other partitions on both floors
may conceal similar panelling; narrow room partitioned off
north end of housepart and furnished with stone shelving; wing
contains pantry with stone shelving, and quarter-turn
staircase with closed string, square newels and broad moulded
handrail (some balusters missing, others replaced) which
