Paulswell is a good and relatively unaltered example of an 18th century farm house, notable for its simple classical proportions, solid Tuscan columed entrance porch and closely-set stacks. The associated U-plan steading range is located directly to the rear of the farm house, adding to the small scale agricultural context and contributing positively to its setting. A circular drystone-lined well to the east of the house adds to the contextual interest. List description updated at resurvey (2010).
