Farmhouse. Late C16/early C17, probably in 2 phases, with later service wing
to rear. Timber framed with modern render. Front slope of roof slated, with
courses of fishscale slates of 2 patterns; rear roof slope pantiled. 2

porch with pierced scalloped bargeboards, a 4-panel door and elliptical
fanlight; Y-traceried windows to the sides. Internal stack comprising 4 flues
combined in sawtooth fashion, the upper section rebuilt; at the base of the

an ovolo-moulded cross-beamed ceiling. Some studding is exposed at the
