House, probably containing former upper floor hall-house. C14 with additions of
C15/C16 and elevations of C19. Timber-framing and rendered on rendered plinth.
Plain tiled roof, hipped to left with off-ridge stack to front, off-centre to

fenestration of 3 windows on 1st floor and 4 windows on ground floor, casements
with segment-heads. Entrance with late C20 half-glazed door in right return
front. Interior: Remains of upper floor hall with moulded beams and cornice in

purlins and no evidence of there having been any purlins. Evidence of timber-
framing throughout building. Large stop-chamfered wooden bressumers to fire-
