Sub-Medieval house-and-byre; late C17 or earlier with later alterations. Now a byre and store.
One-and-a-half storeys; of rubble with part boulder foundations and oriented N-S against the slope of the hill. Old slate roof with squat end chimney with plain capping and weathercoursing. The main (entrance) side faces the present, early C20 house. Off-centre entrance to the house section with 2-pane window to R. 2 small rubble gabled dormers to upper floor with small 4-pane casements. The rear (farmyard-facing) elevation has an opposing entrance with boarded door and a small 2-pane light to the L. Narrow 2-pane catslide dormers to roof. The byre section is apparently contemporary and is continuously-roofed with the house; some corrugated iron and plastic roof repairs to rear pitch. Central stable entrance to farmyard side flanked by small part-glazed windows.
Opposing entrances testify to a former cross-passage plan, now altered and with C19 boarded partition screens. Fireplace and bressummer to former hall (to L). Stopped-chamfered ceiling beams; plain, later joists. Post-and-panel screens to first floor. The byre section is of three bays and is cruck-built. It is possible that an earlier building has been incorporated in the present structure, though it was not possible to examine the evidence during the inspection (February 1995.)
An interesting house-and-byre retaining much of its historic character and perhaps with an earlier core.
