Late C16 to C17 origin, a two-unit, hall and inner room, end-entry house, then remodelled externally in later C18 to early C19 and considerably extended and altered in the C20.

C20 rear wing and lean-to. All windows on rear elevation are plastic units.
Interior not inspected at resurvey. Existing list description says: 'Inside, partition between former centre and left hand rooms has been removed to form one room; modern RSJ on line of former partition but also three massive chamfered ceiling beams with pyramid stops. Fireplace with wood bressumer and fireplace stairs to north. Later fireplace in NE ground floor room. Internal shutters to windows in garden elevation.' These features are confirmed by RCAHMW.
Included as a late C16 to C17 house which, despite changes, retains both character and features of special interest.
