Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right rebuilt possibly
in early C18 with integral outbuilding beyond and store above lower room with

casements but with 3-light C19 casement on ground floor left, which, with the window
above it, is in a slight projection with ovolo-moulded wall-plate C20 plank door to
passage to right. The roof-line of the house drops beyond it over the lower end
with stone steps at the front leading to 1st floor doorway and outbuilding beyond.
Interior: hall has chamfered axial ceiling beams and fireplace with cambered and
chamfered wooden lintel. Lower room has narrow chamfered wooden lintel to
fireplace. On the 1st floor is a C17 wooden chamfered doorframe.
Roof timbers over higher end of house are Cl7 and consist of substantial principal
rafters with trenched purlins and a straight collar set into the trusses with
notched lap joints.
This house survives unspoilt by C20 modernisation with a traditional exterior.
