C17 house with lobby entrance and T-shaped plan-form. Recorded as having been timber-framed originally, but apparently rebuilt in stone. Tile hanging to upper storey, probably Edwardian. House restored late C20, including replacement casement windows. There was formerly a timber diamond mullioned window to the kitchen. Adjoining farm building was cow-house and barn.


T-shaped house of one-and-a-half storeys, of rubble stone with tile hanging to upper storey, under slate roofs. Short cross-wing with large double stone stack to L end with front entrance facing W, and main range at right angles to the R. Replacement windows throughout in original openings, 2-light wooden casements, the lights with segmental heads. The front entrance has a late C20 wood planked door. Main range at right angles to R has window to N side, replacing timber mullioned window; gable end to road has window to each storey. South elevation has 2 windows to ground floor, that to L with small hoodmould; gable end to rear (E) is not tile-hung and has French doors replacing a former window, and a window to the gable. To L of front entrance is a small unit with lower roof line, a former wash-room with rendered front and a window.
Farm range adjoins wash-room and is weather-boarded on a stone plinth under a corrugated iron roof, some sections missing. Two doorways with split doors, that to R with segmental head and leading to a feeding passage. Adjoining stone bay to L with split doors, linking with a stone range to far L, probably earlier, with higher gables but the roof now missing. Rear of weather-boarded section has loft hatch to L, and planked door leading to passage.


The main range contains a hall to rear and kitchen to front, facing road. The entrance, in the short cross-wing, leads into a lobby, with doorway to R into hall. The hall has a large fireplace with slightly chamfered timber lintel. The ceiling has 2 deeply chamfered cross-beams with stepped stops. Replaced stairs to SW corner. Box-framed partition between hall and former outer rooms, now kitchen. The kitchen ceiling has one cross-beam and evidence for the partition between the outer rooms; the N room was a pantry with quarry-tiled floor until the late C20. The former wash-room to L of front entrance has a fireplace with domed bake-oven.
Adjoining farm range is 3-bay, with central feeding passage which has remains of low side walls which supported lofts. Large tie beam trusses; loft doorway to N with slight chamfer to head.
