Exterior

Early C18, 2-unit lobby entry farmhouse with entrance against the gable end fireplace; one-and-a-half-storeys, of random rubble with slate roof. End brick stack to L, a later lateral brick stack to R front. Two-window front with doorway to L. Dormers and lower storey windows have 2-light casements in wood frames (also an added casement beneath the eaves to R of centre). The doorway has a brick surround with segmental arch and a boarded door, and a gabled hood. Two-storey outshut at the rear has replaced casement windows.

Interior

Not inspected (December 1996) but evidently a 2-unit plan with lobby entry and probably a central, straight stair.
