History: The house was probably built in the early-mid C19, adjacent to the kitchen gardens which formerly occupied the site of the Fountain Garden, and oriented towards the drive which was made in the late C18 as part of landscaping work carried out by Thomas Emes.

Exterior: Roughly coursed and squared green local stone, with slate roof; axial stacks (stone, truncated and then raised in brick). 2 storeys, a long gabled range to the rear, with hipped frontage block. Entrance in gable end of cross-range facing N: chamfered 4-centred archway, with 2-light mullioned window in splayed architrave with drop-ended hood moulds on each floor alongside it. Coped gable corbelled out on moulded kneelers. Similar detail in return elevations of frontage range, the upper windows in gabled dormers. The front elevation has similar windows with hood-moulds to ground floor, and coped gabled dormers above.

Listed as an example of an estate cottage in an outstanding setting.
