House, mid C16. One storey and attics. 3-cell cross-entry plan. Timber-
framed and plastered. Pantiled roof, once thatched: gabled C20 casement
dormers. An axial chimney, the shaft rebuilt in C20 red brick. Mid C20
casements. A C16 ogee moulded mullioned window is exposed and glazed, and
another of early C17 ovolo-mullioned type in the parlour. A C20 half-glazed
panelled door on the garden side at cross-entry position. C20 gabled entrance
porch at lobby-entrance position with panelled door. Interior: Typical modest
but heavy mid C16 framing throughout. Unchamfered square-sectioned floor
joists. A pair of 4-centred arched service room doorways (one restored).
Clasped purlin roof; windbracing at gable only. Central over the hall is a
heavy collarbeam truss, in place of a tie beam. Evidence for a timber-framed
chimney on the site of the present one, which is of c.1600 with back-to-back
lintelled fireplaces. Restored c.1980 after a period of dereliction, when the
service cell was rebuilt and other alterations made.
