House, late C17 or early C18; east addition, formerly separate cottage, early
C18. Roughly-squared stone with cut dressings; pantile roof except for Welsh
slates on east part; rebuilt brick stack. South elevation 1 storey (upper
floor removed in C19), 3 + 2 bays. Main part has left-of-centre renewed door
in bolection-moulded surround under entablature with triglyph frieze
incorporating relief-carved panel with date -71- (?). Cross windows in
moulded surrounds with cornices. Coped right gable; right end stack.
Slightly-lower right part, partly behind C20 extension, has raised reverse-
stepped coping to right end. Left return shows another cross window, exposed
within adjacent house. Rear elevation shows blocked stair window and small
window beneath.
Interior: West room, formerly parlour, has original moulded fireplace with
flat-pointed arch within square frame. Plainer 1st-floor fireplace above now
visible in roofspace. East addition has two upper-cruck roof trusses with
collars and the ridge-piece (renewed) carried between the overlapped ends of

doorhead date.
