Farmhouse. Late C17 or early C18 with mid-C19 alterations and additions.
Coursed dressed and squared red sandstone of ashlar quality; tiled roof;
verge parapets with pitched copings. Brick stack in centre valley.
Plan of 2 parallel ranges, entrance front of 2 storeys and 2 windows;
3-light block mullioned small-pane casements, entrance marginally to
left of centre with heavy lintel incised into an ogee arch with a
circle in the tympanum. Garden front has 5- and 3-light chamfered
mullion windows (5-light to first floor left) labelled to ground floor,
French casement inserted to right and lower addition to right end.
The house appears of reasonably homogenous construction; the entrance
front obviously making an attempt at C18 fashion, whilst the rear
has the more typical and archaic details of C16 derivation.
