History

The present house is a late C19 remodelling of an earlier house, from which an original Jacobean staircase was retained.

Exterior

A large 2-storey 3-bay farmhouse comprising a main range with cross wing, of rubble stone and slate roof with overhanging eaves and moulded barge boards, ridge stack to the centre, rear lateral stack to L and side stack to the wing on the R, all of brick. Openings have brick dressings and segmental heads. The lower storey has 3-light windows with wooden mullions and transoms, the upper storey similar 2-light casements. The doorway L of centre has a boarded door and is within an added blockwork porch with slate roof. The R side wall of the cross wing has an external stone stack, the upper portion of which is brick. The 3-window rear of the house has a projecting gabled bay set back from the R end and with lower ridge line, suggesting a former lateral stack. To its L are, in the lower storey, 2-light and 3-light windows, then a 3-light window in the cross wing, the details similar to the front. In the upper storey are 2-light windows.

Interior

The quarter-turn staircase is early C17, and has fret-cut balusters, and has square newels and string with strapwork in relief.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a farmhouse of C19 character but retaining elements of its earlier origins, including a fine C17 staircase.
