- II

Farmhouse. Early C18 with late C19 and C20 alterations. Coursed
dressed rubble; tile roof of low pitch with broad soffit, ashlar end
stacks. 'L'-shaped plan of main block and small lower attached down-
house wing. 2 storeys and attic; 3-window front; cavetto moulded
strings at window head levels; chamfered reveals to formerly mullioned
windows, now C20 sidelight casements; late C19 gabled and finialled
dormers; gabled mid-C19 porch (with verge parapets on shaped kneelers
and finial), central C20 boarded double door; blind plaque over.
Lower gabled projecting wing (with end stack) attached to west angle
of house; fenestration flanking stack to apex and set to right of
ground floor; heavy C17-style lintel to door into downhouse south
