1834. 2-storey 3-bay symmetrical house of rectangular plan with later wing and gabled range of outbuildings to rear. Whitewashed rubble walls. Margined windows. Symmetrical principal (E) elevation, modern lean-to timber porch centred at ground, windows in flanking bays, and at 1st floor, breaking eaves as piend-roofed dormers.
12-pane timber sash and case windows. Purple-grey slate piended roof, symmetrically disposed 4-flue ridge stacks with stone copes and chimney cans.
OUTBUILDING AND WALL: single storey whitewashed rubble gabled range with variety of windows and vertically boarded timber doors. Grey slate roof with skylights. Random rubble wall enclosing W side of outbuildings, and extending N from N gable.
WALLED GARDEN: rectangular garden on sloping site adjacent to principal (E) elevation, enclosed by substantial random rubble walls.
The piend-roofed form is unusually sophisticated for a rural house of this size. A late 19th century photograph taken before the addition of the porch shows that the house had a symmetrical arrangement of two entrance doors flanking a 12-pane timber sash and case window. The doors are shown as having rectangular fanlights with a decorative astragal pattern.
