PLAN: 3-room plan with parlour on the left, kitchen at the centre, another room at the right end and a straight staircase between the parlour and the kitchen rising from an entrance lobby at the front.

Asymmetrical 5-bay south front; C20 12-pane sashes in C18 stone frames with bead moulded arrises, the ground floor with earlier hoodmoulds; doorway to left of centre with chamfered stone frame and C18 stone canopy on shaped stone brackets. At the rear [N] the roof is carried down to lower eaves over integral outshut that has C20 casement windows.
INTERIOR: The parlour to the left has chamfered axial beam with bar-stops at one end. C20 straight staircase rising from entrance lobby. Former kitchen at centre has large roughly chamfered axial beam and broad joists and large fireplace with chamfered stone jambs and unchamfered timber bressumer. Small room at right end has moulded plaster ceiling cornice. Chamber above has a fireplace with a small C18 moulded stone chimneypiece and a later iron grate and fielded panelling under the windows. Two bays of C18 tenoned-purlin roof remains at east end; remainder of roof largely rebuilt.
