Pair of houses, probably once a single dwelling. Dated 1722 with initials
R S on doorhead, but may be late C17. Coursed large rubble with roughly-
shaped quoins and cut dressings; red asbestos tiles on front roof slope,
Welsh slates to rear; 2 stacks rebuilt in white brick.

Front (east) elevation 2 storeys + attics, 3 + 1 bays. Left part is Sandford
House, with central renewed glazed door in irregular surround of large blocks
with chamfer cut to pointed arch; lintel has central star ornament with heart-
shaped date panel on left and sunk oval on right. 4-pane sash above door, in
chamfered surround of former 2-light mullioned window. Flanking bays have had
similar windows to ground and lst floors, enlarged and replaced by various
sashes; and small attic windows set directly beneath eaves. Right part is
Farley House: vertical-panelled door in chamfered surround with flat-pointed
head between C20 windows, 4-pane sash to 1st floor and small attic window.
Raised gable copings on moulded kneelers; truncated left end stack; ridge and
right end stacks rebuilt on old bases.

Left return shows enlarged ground-floor window, 2-light mullioned window on
1st floor and small boarded opening with timber lintel to attic. Rear
