Built in the 1830s and described as a 'new house' on the 1839 Tithe map. The adjoining stable is an addition shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey, by which time an additional unit, later converted to a shop, had also been added on the NE side, to which another house was added in the C20.


A 2-storey 3-window rubble-stone house with corrugated iron roof and stone stack to the L. Openings are offset to the R. The entrance has a round-headed doorway with voussoirs and keystone, to a boarded door and blank tympanum. It is flanked by keyed segmental windows with voussoirs. Upper-storey windows are smaller and beneath the eaves. All windows have been replaced by wooden shutters for agricultural use. Attached to the L side is a lower lofted stable of rubble stone and cement-grouted slate roof. On the R side is a wide 4-centred arch with voussoirs and keystone, with double boarded doors. In the gable end is a boarded loft door in a segmental brick surround.

Attached to the R (NE) side of the house is a single-storey former shop, and then a 2-storey 3-window house, both rendered with slate roofs.


Not inspected.
