Three semi-detached cottages, now one house. Early C17, rebuilt
and refronted 1747. 'L'-plan; main range has through passage to
left of central stack. Timber-framing, refronted in rubble stone,
thatched roof, brick stacks. Two storey, 4-windowed; casements.
Planked door in gabled porch to left of centre, C19 three-light
casement to left and two to right. First floor has four 3-light
casements and datestone incised with TE/1747 to left of door.
Right and left returns rendered, right return of C17 single storey
timber-framed extension has 3-light casement to ground floor and 2-
light casement to eyebrow dormer. Rear of main range has planked
door to left, two C20 casements to right, wall plate with mortices
on soffit, of former timber-framed wall is retained above rubble
stone facing. Extension is also partly rebuilt in stone with
planked door and 2-light casements to eyebrow dormers, rear gable
has pair of diagonally-set brick stacks, coped verge.
Interior has deeply chamfered beams with stepped stops; west beam
on stone corbel in passage, wing has beam with narrower chamfers
and ogee stops, blocked open fireplaces, planked doors with strap
hinges, roof not accessible but said to be intact. This house
represents an unusual survival of the through passage plan in this
area; the hall was to the right of the passage, separated by a
rubble stone wall which supports the main stack of the now blocked
open fireplace backing onto the passage, services were to the left
of the passage and additional accommodation was provided by the
square timber-framed extension in later C17.
