House, late C15. Timber-framed and roughcast. Thatched roof half-hipped at
both ends. An axial chimney of painted red brick, and a gable chimney to
right. A 3-cell open-hall house; 2 storeys. Mainly C20 small-pane casements;
some original windows are exposed and glazed. C20 hipped plaintiled entrance
porch, glazed, with battened and boarded door. The structure is unusually
complete and fully exposed. The 2-bay open hall has all four doorways in the
cross-entry, with hollow-chamfered 4-centred arches. The hall open truss is
concealed, but part of the chamfered arch-braces are visible, with evidence
for pilaster-shafts below. 6-light hall windows with transomes, some of the
square mullions retained and glazed. At the dais end is good tension-braced
close-studding. Complete smoke-encrusted coupled-rafter roof. The end cells
have diamond-mullioned windows, and arch-braced studwork at the corners.
Unchamfered heavy lodged floor joists; the service rooms were formerly divided
by a wattle-and-daub partition. Evidence for speres at cross-entry and at the
parlour doorway. An inserted upper floor with chamfered joists in the hall,
with a large altered open fireplace backing onto the cross-entry, both of
c.1600. A rear mid C20 2-storey extension.
