Farmhouse, probably c.1700, altered. Mostly watershot coursed sandstone
with quoins, some channelled ashlar and some brick, slate roof.
Unorthodox (or altered) plan, consisting of roughly square double-depth
3-bay main range, with a single-bay gabled wing continued from the south
gable. All 2½ storeys, of unusual height. Present front on east side,
almost symmetrical, has a rectangular doorway offset left containing a
recessed doorcase and glazed door, and 2 large 3-light chamfered mullion
windows on each floor; the south gable has a late-C17 type doorway with
moulded surround and shaped lintel, a small 2-light mullioned attic window
in the gable, and attached to the left hand side, slightly overlapping the
jamb of the doorway, a 2½ storey gabled wing, the re-entrant wall of
scored render, the gable of channelled ashlar with one window on each
floor, of 3, 3, and 2 lights (like those of the front), and the rear, of
sandstone rubble, a large external chimney stack and a 2-light window at
ground floor. To the left of this the rear wall of the main range has
chamfered-mullion stairlight windows, the lowest (offset to the right) of
2 lights, the others of 3, and the upper of these smaller with glazing
bars; further left 2 altered windows on each floor, and a cut-down chimney
between them. North gable wall is stepped, the set-back part finished in
brick, and has a moulded doorway to the house, and a mono-pitch roofed
single storey extension entered by a doorway with Tudor-arched lintel; and
a gable chimney. Interior: apparently altered, but contains full-height
doglegged staircase with closed string, turned balusters and newels, broad
