History

Probably C16-17 originally. Three-unit house with cruck-framed truss between the N and central units. A datestone by the front door reads ''''PDS 1762'''' when the house was probably remodelled and a further unit added to the W end at right angles.
A range of pig sties with a smithy were added to the N end of the house, probably in the C18, whilst a cart shed was added to the W unit later.

Exterior

House of one-and-a-half storeys with L-shaped plan, constructed of white-washed rubble stone under slate roofs with stone stacks. Wooden casement windows, some replaced in late C20. Main range facing W with panelled front door to R, near angle of ranges, with small catslide porch. To its L is a datestone reading PDS 1762. Further L is a very small window (lighting pantry). Wide planked door with timber lintel to N unit, L of which is an early 2-light casement window. Between this door and window is a gabled dormer to upper storey containing a casement window; projecting stone stack to N gable end. West unit at right angles has higher eaves, a casement window to lower storey and a gabled half-dormer above. Stone end stack. Added cart shed to its R with corrugated steel roof; wide opening to W end with timber lintel.
Rear elevation has gabled chimney projection to L (to hall fireplace). Its roof-line is continuous with the added W unit of house, suggesting they are contemporary. To R and set back is a doorway into former hall, possibly a later insertion, with a small brick porch with hipped slate roof. Central unit has a late C20 casement and gabled dormer above. To R is small gabled bay with short end stack, to wash room. S side has similar C20 casements and 2 gabled dormers.
Adjoining the N end of the main range and at an angle, is a long low range containing 3 pig sties and a former smithy to the R. Constructed of whitewashed rubble stone under a corrugated asbestos-cement roof. Each sty has a stable door to R, a 2-light opening with shutters to L, below which is a small chute for despatching the swill. Wide opening to smithy.

Interior

The main range is 3-unit with hall at R end. Small lobby inside front entrance, with hall to R under an archway. The ceiling has a deeply chamfered cross beam with cut stops. Large fireplace to rear with wide segmental arch (the original lintel may be behind the plaster). Wooden staircase opposite, in SW corner, with small turned balusters; cellar beneath. Doorway to N to kitchen, which occupies the central unit. Further room to W of hall, in later unit, not entered. The external doorway to the N of the main range leads into a room which is not currently inhabited, but which at one time was used as a wash room; large fireplace with chamfered timber lintel to rear in a small projection. Flight of wooden stairs to the R lead to an attic room; the cruck-framed partition is visible to the R. The bases of the crucks were not visible; the partition has substantial timber posts beneath the crucks.
The cart shed has a substantial truss with raked struts; external stack of W unit to rear wall. The smithy attached to the pig sties has a small fireplace against the N end stack of the house.

Reasons for Listing
