C17 origin; formerly single unit Type B house but with C18 to earlier C19 addition at south-west end. Late C20 rear extension and other alterations.

Two modern windows with small panes on first floor and a larger window on ground floor replaced by a recessed bow in 2003. Probably C19 porch, to right hand; stone walls, hipped slate roof and wooden boarded floor. C18 to earlier C19, two storey addition to SW with rounded corner (shown on Tithe map) and old slate roof.
Rear elevation with a full width C20 extension with lean-to roof meeting the main roof above the eaves. Large flat-topped dormer in wing.
Interior not inspected at resurvey, but it is said to have stopped and chamfered beams to ground floor with joists hidden by plaster ceiling; stone stair in outshut; blocked earlier stair doorway. These details of the single room plan are confirmed by RCAHMW.
Included as a C17 house which, despite modern changes, retains both character and features of special interest. It also has group value with Pear Tree Cottage.
