Former farmhouse. C16, in 2 phases, with early C19 alterations. Renovated mid
C20. Timber framed and plastered. Pantiled roof with glazed black tiles to
the front. 2 storeys and attic. 3-cell form. 3 windows, mid C20 aluminium

Earlier work is in 3 bays, comprising hall and service cells. At the service
end, heavy plain joists set flat. Hall chamber has exposed studding with a
blocked diamond-mullioned window; the ceiling, with plain flat joists, has
original trimming for a large opening. A 4th bay to the south is a late C16

end at first floor and attic levels. Stack is an early C17 insertion:
original ovolo lintols to both ground floor fireplaces. Parlour ceiling,
probably contemporary with stack, has bridging beam on line of former gable
end, with ovolo-moulding to one side only. Square chamfered joists. Over the
first phase, a queen-post roof without collar braces.
