Former farmhouse. Mid C17, with C18 and early C19 additions. Timber-framed
and rendered; thatched roof with decorated ridge. 1½ storeys; basic 2-cell
lobby-entrance plan, extended at both ends. An internal chimney-stack with a
plain red brick shaft. 2 dormers with plain bargeboards, spike finials, and
2-light plain casement windows. 3 2-light and one double 2-light window to
the ground floor, all with plain mid-C20 casements. Entrance into a half-
glazed semi-circular porch with a thatched roof sloping into the main roof.
Plain framing exposed inside: studding with no middle rail. To the right of
the stack, main beam with small chamfer and scroll stops with groove; joists
on edge; timber lintel to open fireplace with scroll-stops and double groove.
An original 3-light window in the former end wall, with small square mullions
and little diamond-shaped wooden glazing-bars between, has been slightly
repositioned to give access to the added end bay, which has primary braces and
bisected studs. To the left of the stack, a similar ceiling and plain lintel
to the open fireplace. A C19 lean-to along part of rear, and a room added
circa 1970. Adjoining the left gable end, a range of single-storey
outbuildings in red brick and flint, now partly converted to living
