The building of later medieval origins, was probably shortened at the N end by the removal of a lean-to, and extended at the S into the former barn. A later large porch is added to the E front.
Rendered, with an exposed cruck frame on the N gable, and slate roof. One storey and attic, the S end, formerly the barn, now 2 storey accommodation. Boarded door in porch and paned timber windows, and one gabled dormer on the E side. Brick stacks. The building has been extended on the W by a glazed conservatory.
The early section now consists of 2 bays, defined by 3 cruck trusses, originally with an open hearth, replaced by an inserted stone stack, probably in the late C16. Cruck frames survive to near ground level, and have collars, and morticed apex trenched for the ridge (Alcock Type C). They carry one tier of trenched purlins and stub ties to the wall posts. A cellar exists under the first bay of the two-storey section.
Included as a house originating as an open-hall medieval longhouse, thus of significant historical interest, and retaining a proportion of its original construction intact.
