Substantial two-and-a-half storey farmhouse dating from three periods: the central range is the earliest, probably dating from the C15, aligned on a N/S axis, the W two-storey range is C17 aligned E/W and the E range is a lower C19 addition, set back on an E/W axis. Whitewashed rendered elevations with steeply pitched slate roofs: four gable chimneys all rebuilt in yellow bricks, two to the central range and one each to the W and E ranges. The house has been refenestrated with a mixture of mostly modern casements and small pane sash windows, being symmetrically aligned to the front (S) W end range and the rear (N) central range. The central range to the front elevation has a large projecting stack rising to the eaves with blocked square window openings to the attic high up on the gable on S and N faces. Rear elevation has a miscellany of modern windows largely of random pattern.
Entered on the S side via a modern gabled porch into the C17 W range. Interior is generally modernised. A good well type oak stair survives in this range with five landings with turned balusters, flat moulded handrail to flat topped newels, ball pendants and solid moulded strings. To right hand side of the entrance hallway are two surviving long, square-headed C15 lights with hollow chamfered mullion and chamfered sandstone jambs. Formerly on gable of the earliest hall range, now internalised by the C17 range. Basement of C19 wing has surviving cast iron range at E end. Original pegged and trussed "A" frame roof.
Listed grade II for the special interest of its late-medieval origins and good surviving C17 staircase.
