II

House, possibly originally a farmhouse, and perhaps once 2
dwellings. Built in 3 principal phases between the early C18
and the early C19. Roughly coursed and squared rubble in small
blocks, painted white; with stone flagged roofs.
EXTERIOR: earliest phase comprises a low 2-storey range to the
right: 2 storeys, 2 inserted windows to first floor, one in
small square original opening, the other enlarged. Lower
windows also inserted in earlier openings, but these are
probably not primary, since one abuts a blocked 2-light rough
mullioned window on a higher level. Rough angle quoins in
part, and boulder plinth. left hand gable end stack, with
secondary phase built against this gable wall, with blocked
doorway immediately adjacent to the gable, and inserted
casement windows, one on each floor, to the left.
Early C19 building adjoins this building: 2-storeys over a
basement, 2-window range, with doorway in added gabled porch
adjoining right-hand gable, and inserted or renewed windows on
each floor. Wide blocked segmental arched wagon entry to the
right. Gable chimneys.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
