Probably late 18th century with large mid to later 19th century addition. 2-storey with attic, gabled farmhouse, extended at right angles to W with taller 2-storey range. Yellow rubble sandstone to original house with ashlar dressings and quoin strips. Squared and snecked whin rubble to later addition with contrasting dressings and ashlar quoin strips, 1st floor lintel course; base course and cill courses; stone mullions and chamfered arrises.
S (ENTRANCE) ELEVATION: 3-bay original house to right with advanced gable of later addition to left. Earlier bays with later red sandstone ashlar porch addition set in re-entrant angle to left, deeply-
moulded Tudor-arched doorway with 2-leaf panelled timber door, flanking side lights, shaped fanlight and round-headed light to left, all under moulded cornice and stepped parapet with blank shield; window in bay to right and lean-to timber structure at centre, 3 regularly-disposed windows to 1st floor; attic floor with stone gable breaking eaves at centre, with window, and with gabled wallhead dormers breaking eaves in flanking bays. Dominant gabled bay to left with slightly projecting stone-roofed square-plan tripartite window at ground rising to flusher corniced 1st floor bipartite in moulded panel.
W ELEVATION: (addition) gabled bay to right of centre with 2 single windows at ground flanking canted pillar corbelled to canted window at 1st floor, bay immediately to left of centre with narrow light to each floor and broad advanced gable to outer left with window to each floor.
N (REAR) ELEVATION: dominant circular stair tower breaking eaves in re-entrant angle formed at centre between recessed bays of original house and advanced gable of addition. Lean-to bay projecting from stair tower at ground. Bays to left with garage door slapping at ground, 2 windows above.
E ELEVATION: blank gabled elevation.
10- and 12-pane glazing patterns (some lying-pane) in timber sash and case windows to earlier part, except gablehead window to centre S. Modern replacement glazing elsewhere. Grey slates with corrugated metal roof to older part. Circular cupola to stair tower. Cavetto-coped ashlar stacks with some cans; overhanging eaves with plain bargeboarding and decorative brackets.
The interesting canted pillar at the west elevation is reminiscent of Philip Webb's design for William Morris' 'Red House' of 1859, displaying an early knowledge of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
