House, mid C17 with C18 outshut;restored, porch added and outshut heightened in
mid-C19; outbuilding probably C18. Rubble with roughly-shaped quoins and cut
dressings; Welsh slate roofs. 2 storeys + attics, 2 bays. Central gabled
porch with re-set 2-light mullioned window under straight hoodmould; and vertical-
panelled door on right return. Above porch oval window with radial glazing, in
moulded surround. Flanking bays have 3-light mullioned windows, mostly with
small-paned casements, on ground and 1st floors and 2-light attic windows in
gabled dormers, all under straight hoodmoulds. Porch, end gables and dormers
all coped on moulded kneelers; stepped-and-corniced end stacks. Left return

sash on 1st floor of outshut. Right return shows blocked chamfered window above
outbuilding roof. Outbuilding shows raised reverse-stepped gable coping to
right and attached pent privy with boarded door and small window on far right.
Rear elevation of house has boarded door; 16- and 12-pane Yorkshire sashes.

Interior: Original front doorway within porch, a flat-pointed arch in moulded

renewed in the C19 but probably correctly, except that the 3-light windows may
have been heightened.
