Possibly a late medieval house rebuilt as a sub-medieval end-entry regional farmhouse in late C17. One diamond-mullioned window (relocated) and possible evidence of another. The ends of the ceiling beams visible externally perhaps suggesting a conversion of an earlier building. Late C20 restoration.

Doorway to L side near recessed lower block which has doorway and window to L, and to gable end, projecting chimney with (to R) window at upper level, and door below.
At R end of house, lower recessed block with doorway and single window to each floor.


Joist-beam ceiling to main block. Large open fireplace with winding stair to R. Principal roof structure of main block intact.
