Farmhouse. Dated 1681 on gable of rear wing, and on spice
cupboard in housepart; altered. Mixed random rubble, graduated
slate roof. T-plan formed by a single-depth 3-unit range on
approx. north-south axis, of which the south and centre bays
comprise the house and the north bay appears to have served
some service function, with a porch offset left of centre of
the east front of the house and a service wing to the rear of
the 2nd bay.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 2:1 windows. The 2-storey gabled porch
has a slightly-arched outer doorway with a moulded surround
and a lintel with hoodmould, a C20 inner door, and a 2-light
double-chamfered mullioned window at 1st floor with cavetto
mullion and a hoodmould; its north side has a slanted peephole
at ground floor and a 1-light window above. The flanking
windows on both floors are all C19 casements, but at 1st floor
of the 3rd bay is a 2-light mullioned window like that in the
porch. Gable chimney to left, ridge chimney at junction of 2nd
and 3rd bays. Rear: the 3rd bay has only a wide doorway with
timber lintel; the rear wing has in its north side a
square-headed doorway with an old studded double-layered door
furnished with a wrought-iron knocker inscribed "R HI 1681", a
2-light mullioned window to the right and two 3-light windows
above, all double-chamfered with cavetto mullions, and in its
west gable two small 1-light attic windows with diamond-leaded
glazing, and above and between these a square datestone
lettered "H / R I / 1681" (=Richard and Isabella
INTERIOR: housepart in 2nd bay has C19 ceiling beam in
position of former firehood bressumer, and set in the wall
below this a carved spice cupboard (presumably re-located)
lettered "1681 / H / R I"; in line with the front door is a
straight C19 staircase enclosed on 3 sides at 1st floor by C17
muntin-and-rail panelled partitions; in the north side of this
is a similarly panelled door, and to the rear of this another
door of muntin-and-plank form; the chamber over the housepart
