Two storey single depth house with a later higher addition comprising former granary at south end. Roof with higher eaves and ridge. Stone stack built up in brick to north.

Fourthly, to south of end brick stack, smaller 2-light ground floor window and single light first floor window.
Former barn adjoins north end of house beyond chimneys. East elevation from south end with small boarded loft doorway; secondly, blocked deep segmental doorway; thirdly, small boarded loft doorway and, fourthly, a window.

Interior not seen at resurvey. Old Rosedew House is the hall and inner room of the possible original three room plan, with the extension into the barn at the north end. The following description is for the whole historic entity. It is said to contain a fireplace at the south end and in the centre; arched stopped and chamfered stone doorways, eg between north and south rooms, 'cross-passage' doorway in west elevation; stopped and chamfered beams; formerly, a partition between middle and north room. These features are confirmed by RCAHMW where a plan also shows a mural stair and the walls broken through at either end into the former barn and outhouse.
