Unavailable for inspection. In 1980 recorded as: "the front door leads into a narrow staircase-hall with wooden partitions. The parlour has axial joists and a modern fireplace. The kitchen has a transverse beam with slight chamfers and a run-out stop. The deep fireplace has a badly damaged wooden lintel: there is a brick oven and a secondary range. At the back is a lean-to dairy and scullery: the dairy has slate slabs and shallow recesses in the back wall. There is a small cross-corner fireplace (now blocked) in the scullery.".
