Probably early C19 and shown on the Tithe map of 1841.


Two-storey 2-window farmhouse, constructed of large blocks of roughly coursed stone under a slate roof with stone end stacks. Central entrance with C20 half-glazed wooden door under a large stone lintel, flanked by 16-pane hornless sash windows. That to the L is larger with a stone lintel, the smaller window to the R with a renewed concrete lintel. A 9-pane wooden window has been inserted immediately to its R, in front of the chimney, also with a concrete lintel. Sash windows to upper storey beneath eaves and aligned with those below; that to L is again larger. No openings to E gable end. To the R is a single-storey range, now altered, and probably a service range or outbuilding originally. It has a late C20 half-glazed door to the L and a C20 casement window to L of centre, to the R of which is a lean-to shed. W gable end and rear not seen.


No access to interior at time of inspection.
