Farmhouse. Early C18, possibly incorporating earlier fabric. Rubble, remains of rendering to south, painted or rendered elsewhere; slate roof, rendered stacks to each outer gable.
L-plan, with long barn to the east not of special interest. May incorporate cross passage early block to south, but entrance now in north wing; later dairy built in internal angle under corrugated asbestos-cement lean-to roof, and a two-level store added to north end.
Entrance front is two storeys with four-pane sash low right, and at first floor above broad C17 or C18 plank door centrally. Store to right has wide plank door on stops, and small square-opening with shutters, top right. The main south front is in two storeys with three windows; at ground floor a glazed lean-to, not of special interest, a two-light glazing-bar casement and a three-light horizontal bar casement, C20 steel French door. At first floor are two three-light horizontal bar casements and a broad C20 wood casement 'picture window'.
Interior: very broad bressummer fire at north end with large domed curing chamber, possibly in position originally occupied by stair; now has C20 staircase. Various rough chamfered beams and good plank door to dairy. In return wing is a blocked door, possibly to original cross passage and two blocked windows in the north wall. Large bressummer fire with very deep timber at east end, flanked by a low blocked opening with timber lintel and haunched jambs. Roof is C19.
Although much modified, a building of historical interest.
