Probably early C17. The fenestration appears to have been renewed in the early C19, and the timber-framing covered in roughcast, c1910.
Box-framed, with brick nogging, largely covered in roughcast render (but some of the timber-framing is exposed in the gable end). Slate roof with scalloped bands. Axial and end wall stacks. One and a half storeys, 3-unit plan, with baffle entrance (against axial stack) to left of centre. Door in gabled porch, and wide 16-pane sash windows with smooth rendered surrounds to ground floor, with small paned iron casements in gabled dormers with scalloped barge-boards above.
The house retains a 3-unit layout with central room heated by axial chimney: curved bressumer to fireplace and stop-chamfered transverse beam and joists.
Listed as a good surviving example of a timber-framed vernacular house which is also of interest for the later detail of the fenestration etc, giving it the character of a picturesque cottage.
