Farmhouse and attached flat. Early C16, C17 addition, rebuilt
early C19. Rendered rubble stone, tiled hipped roof, brick and
ashlar stacks. L-plan, through passage to left of C16 build,
later build at right angles. Two-storey, 4-windowed south front;
sashes. Four-panelled central door in C20 glazed porch, either
side is C20 bay. First floor has four 16-pane sashes. Left
return has rendered external stack with offsets to gable, to left
is C16 build with large ashlar lateral stack, now truncated, C20
door and C20 plastic-framed casements to left, to extreme left is
moulded stone Tudor-arched doorway to through passage. Rear of
C16 range has 2-light casements inserted into 2-light round-arched
mullioned windows, through passage to right has chamfered stone
jambs to entry. Rear of later range has C20 casements and gabled
extension. Attached to left of Medieval range is farm building,
with inserted C20 garage doors, to rear.
Interior of C16 range has blocked fireplace, blocked arched window
with splayed opening and raked sill on south gable, now internal
wall between this and later range. C17 range has open fireplace
with timber lintel on stone jambs, rest of fittings are C19,
including stairs with stick balusters, 4-panelled doors. Despite
recent renovations, the former plan can be determined, and
evidently consisted of hall, probably open to roof, with lateral
stack and through passage at lower end and single light at upper
end. A cross range was added to south, probably in C17, when hall
window blocked. (N. Pevsner, The Buildings of England, Wiltshire,
