Moor House is a good example of a little altered traditional building that presents a distinctive frontage to the main road. It forms one of a group of buildings of the same design scheme which were probably built to house workers of a nearby granite quarry. Moor House is the largest with the most detailing and is said to have been built for the quarry manager. Moor House along with Heathbank and Crookmore to the E all retain their original contiguous boundary walls, gate piers, railings and gates. Listed B Group with Heathbank and Crookmore. To NE former stables, converted to residential accommodation (in separate ownership).
