Late 18th/early 19th century with minor alterations. Single storey with later attic to farmhouse; long; rectangular-plan range incorporating symmetrical 3-bay farmhouse at centre and slightly lower height flanking attached agricultural outbuildings. Limewashed rubble; partly harled. Flush painted architraves to openings to principal (NW) elevation of farmhouse. Coped skews to farmhouse.
NW (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: farmhouse to centre; central entrance with flanking windows to ground floor and attic (later/late 19th century polygonal piended dormers to attic). Attached range to left thought to include milking parlour/byre; standard entrance to right (adjoining farmhouse); 2 windows to left (that to right smaller). Attached range to right including barn with hayloft; largely blank apart from entrances to right and outer left (adjoining farmhouse); that to outer left with small low flanking windows and shallow opening above.
SW ELEVATION: gable end of barn with pitching window to gable.
SE ELEVATION: remains of circular-plan former threshing mill to left.
2-pane timber sash and case windows to farmhouse. Grey slate roofs/partly corrugated asbestos to outbuildings. Coped gablehead stacks to either side (NE and SW) of farmhouse.
INTERIOR: not inspected (1999).
An unusually intact example of an early farmhouse with attached outbuildings. The linear plan-form appears to have been commonly used at this date in the area. It rarely survives intact, particularly with a largely unaltered farmhouse (still in use as such) at the centre. The sparse fenestration of the range also survives largely unaltered. A former circular-plan threshing mill attached to the SE elevation, which was included in the 1981 list description, has apparently (1999) fallen down.
