Former farmhouse. Late C16 with slightly later addition to right, formerly
extending to rear. The earlier part of the house almost certainly had a 3-
cell form, the parlour cell to the left now lost. Renovated 1985-6. Timber
framed and plastered. Pantiled roof, hipped to the right. 2 storeys and
attic. Small-paned casement windows of C19 and mid C20 date. Cross-entry
doorway with C19 4-panel door. Small hoodmoulds over all main openings. To
left a heavy gable stack, much of the plain oblong shaft original. A further
stack to rear, within later range. Lean-to addition on left gable end.
Interior considerably modernised. Plain studding with reverse-curved braces,
the braces at the later end cranked. 2-bay hall with chamfered-joist ceiling,
one bay altered to accommodate a mid C20 stair. Girding beam set into main
stack bears the date 1596. Newel stair by stack has been retained. Roof has
clasped purlins with cranked wind bracing.
