The house was probably originally built in the C18, and was apparently, from the inscription, repaired when taken in by the Nanney estate in 1820.


The house is built on a raised platform on ground rising to the west, and falling sharply in front, with the farmyard below. It is built of local stone rubble with flushed joints on a rough boulder plinth, and has a slate roof between gable stacks, that at the W end larger. Two storeys, 3 window bays with a central boarded door in a moulded frame, and small 4-pane windows, but a 12-pane sash window to the left of the door. Over the door, a slate plaque reading 'Repared by / RE'V JO'N NANEY / 1820'. The house was enlarged c1920 by a single storey wing in line and set forward of the right end of the house. This has a door in front, and facing the front of the house, and a gable end stack.


Not accessible at the time of inspection.
