Farmhouse. Early C17, extended and restored early C20. Timber framed core;
the ground floor is cased in red brick and the first floor is tile-hung.
Pantiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. 2-cell form with lobby entry; 3-cell
form as extended. Reproduction casement windows with diamond-leaded glass,
some incorporating re-used panels of stained glass. The C20 brick porch has a
good plank door, panelled on the outer face: this may well be the original, in
which case it is a rare survival on a farmhouse. The porch has side windows
with ovolo-moulded mullions, probably taken from elsewhere in the house.
Internal sawtooth stack. To the rear there are original ovolo-moulded mullion
windows. Both ground floor rooms have ovolo-moulded bridging beams and
cornice; in the hall similarly-moulded joists are exposed. Against the end
wall of the hall is C17 panelling, each panel with a sunk lozenge. Both the
parlour and the chamber above have fireplaces with moulded stucco arches.
Some exposed studding. Original newel stairs (both flights). The roof has 2
rows of butt purlins and cranked wind-bracing.
