Exterior

C18 storied farmhouse with earlier origins. Evidence to the rear suggests that the building was originally a single-storey sub-Medieval dwelling, which was raised and altered in the second-half C18; attached byre and cart bay to lower (E) end. Of whitened rubble with boulder foundations and an old slate roof; plain, squat end chimneys. Near-centre entrance with recessed boarded door and projecting dripstone above; flanking window openings to both floors, those to first under the eaves. C19 4-pane casement to rear with boulder-built ground floor masonry evident. Single-storey pitched-roofed extension to S at rear, forming an 'L' with the main house; construction as before with boarded entrance and C20 window to E face. Stepped-down, and adjoining the farmhouse to the E, a contemporary or near-contemporary byre and cart bay. Large plain cart entrance to L and a standard entrance to R, with 2 boulder steps; part-stable door.

Interior

Slate-flagged floor to main hall with beamed ceiling; plain joists and beams. Boarded draft screen to R of entrance with shelving to rear. Large inglenook to R with flat bressummer and bracketed mantelshelf above. Plain C19 stair to L in hall, with stick balusters and boarded cupboard below. Beamed ceiling to parlour room as before.
