Exterior

Dated 1790; small 2-window storied farmhouse with later additions. Of whitened rubble on boulder foundations with slate roof; squat end chimneys with plain capping and weathercoursing. Central entrance with C20 part-glazed door and flanking late C19 4-pane sashes in (apparently) original openings; similar first-floor windows, under the eaves. Adjoining to the R, stepped-down and set back, a near-contemporary single-storey byre addition, converted some thirty years ago to domestic use, at which time its roof was raised; 2 modern windows, formerly entrances. Later slated catslide extension to the rear of the house; modern openings.

Interior

Beamed ceiling to open ground-floor room with plain beams and joists; on the central transverse beam, is inscribed ORO 1790. Large fireplace to L end with plain, slightly-cambered inglebeam bearing similar inscription; stepped window splays to front, modern stair.

Reasons for Listing

Included for its special interest as a dated example of a small late C18 vernacular farmhouse.
