The house is of two dates probably in the early and mid 17th century, with the building break visible in the non-alignment of the rear wall; the part of the house 'below' the cross-passage is the younger and significantly it is the narrower. Both builds formerly had ovolo-moulded window mullions. The house has a P Smith type-B plan, with a chimney backing onto the entry passage. The exterior walls have been concealed behind modern render and the interior extensively disguised in recent refitting.
The house is of one storey with a semi-attic upper floor, rendered, with a concrete tile roof. Square-shaped central stone chimney, 2nd one on N gable-end. On W, stone labels over mezzanine stair-light & central door, now a window. Lean-to shed against N end.
The former hall in S part has an ovolo-moulded ceiling beam and other stop-chamfered beams; the inner room has exposed plain joists. The N room, rebuilt mid-C17 as parlour, 5 ovolo-moulded ceiling beams with unusual shaped stops, splayed fireplace with arched timber lintel moulded to match beams. 2 Doors C19 panelled. Chimneyside stairs rebuilt C19. Old roof trusses partly visible S build.
Listed notwithstanding external alterations for the special interest of the surviving 17th-century ground-plan and the parlour which is a handsome 17th-century room.
