Farmhouse, now house. Earlier C18, much altered and extended in C20. Brick,
painted at ground floor and rendered above, with some tile-hanging at south end;

storeys; the former front, facing west, is 3 bays, symmetrical, with a small 2-
light window in place of the former central doorway, a cross-window stairlight
above this, large 2-storey bow windows in the outer bays and small hipped
dormers above these, and a half-hipped roof with external chimney stacks at
both ends (that to the left enclosed by modern additions to the north end which
are not of special interest). The right-hand gable wall, which is tile-hung above
ground floor, has a modern glazed door at ground floor to the rear of the stack,
2 small windows above this and another to the attic; the rear has, inter alia,
various small altered 2-light casements and 2 dormers like those at the front,

brick fireplace at the north end and the top flight of an original staircase; said
to have cellars with timber-framed partitions.
