Farmhouse. Early to late C18. Squared and coursed rubblestone.
Stone slate roof with coped verges and ashlar end stacks. Double-
pile plan. 3-storey symmetrical 3-window front. Central door
has stone hood on brackets and moulded case. Ground and first
floor windows are 12-pane flush sashes with 6 pane sashes to second
floor. Flush quoins and plain window architraves. Rear facade
is 2 storey and under outshut roof, with early C19 lean-to
extension to left. 3 windows are 2-light beaded mullions with
casements. Same casements on rear half of gable ends, but sashes
to front half.
Interior: large stone 4-centred arched fireplace in room to front
left. Plain stone square-headed fireplace with keystone to rear
left. Ceilings of rear part of house are lower and flue levels
different from front. 4 and 5-plank doors. The difference
between front and rear seems to suggest a remodelling of the front
in late C181early C19, of an early C18 house.
