House, formerly farmhouse. Late C16/early C17 with C19 addition and alterations. Rendered and part pargetted timber-frame, part red and gault brick. Plain tile roof with brick central ridge and rear wing stacks. 2-unit lobby-entry plan extended to rear with early wing and also C19 wing. 2 storeys. Front to garden has 3-light casements and central door. Left side has glazed double doors, present entrance, in C19 wing and casements.

INTERIOR. Winder stair in front of stack. Tall panel framing visible in part. Chamfered bridging beams with ogee stops. Large stack with base remodelled in C19. Former open fireplace to right, remodelled in C19, has fine and unusual cast-iron fire surround and grate in Beaux Arts/Art Nouveau style.
