A probably late C17 house, perhaps converted to a pair of cottages in C18, now once again one house and completely modernised and with additions since listing. Roughly squared and coursed limestone rubble with an artificial stone slate roof. One and a half storeys and with four casement windows with a doorway in the centre. This was a two cell single depth house, but an additional room, with an extra window and dormer, has been added on the left hand end since listing in 1981. Three gabled dormers in steeply pitched roof with two brick gable stacks. Two small lights in the south gable end. Rear elevation has an extension, modern lattice casements and four rooflights.
Interior not available at time of resurvey, but the previous list description reports semi-spiral chimney stairs, evidence of former post and panel partition and stop chamfered beams.
Listed for the special interest of its sub-medieval origins, not withstanding the modern alterations.
