History

A late C16 house consisting originally of a hall and inner room, with a 3rd room on the opposite side of the cross passage. A kitchen with granary was added mid-late C17, when a new stair was made to the attic in a shallow projection against the gable end of the house, followed by a dairy in the C18. The fenestration was altered and the main house rendered early 1960s.

Exterior

Two-storey house with attic, consisting of a main range with gabled kitchen wing behind to R, in front of which is a lean-to dairy against the R gable end of the house, which has lean-to in front of it. Roughcast battered walls. The main house has a slate roof, the kitchen and dairy corrugated asbestos-cement roofs. The main house has stone stacks to the centre (part rebuilt in brick) and R, with a later brick stack to L. The front has a lately added porch, gablets to R and L of centre, and 1960s windows. In the rear wall the hall L of centre has a 4-light window with ovolo mullions, L of which is a similar 3-light window in a short lobby added from the main house to the kitchen, and re-set from the original service room. A window is inserted R of central stack in position of the original cross passage doorway. The L gable end of the house is 2-window with 1960s insertions.

The lean-to to R of house has a corrugated metal roof and full-height opening to R. The dairy has a single boarded opening lower R. The kitchen has an added lean-to in R side wall which has a boarded door to front. Behind, the kitchen has an end stone stack, external stone steps to a boarded granary door, and a low gabled projection lower R housing former ovens.

Interior

The original plan form mostly survives. Inside the porch is the original cross passage doorway, which has a chamfered stone surround with broach stops, and a Tudor head. The door is boarded with studs and strap hinges. A similar doorway survives from the cross passage to the hall. The lower end of the house, on the L side of the cross passage, has chamfered cross beams with run-out stops, indicating its original domestic use. The hall has cross beams with cut stops. A post-and-panel partition survives at least partially behind later plaster, and has a Tudor-headed doorway. The kitchen also has cross beams with cut stops, while the dairy has a flagged floor and salting slabs. The doorway from the kitchen to the stairs has a Tudor head. The stair to the 1st floor is replaced in the earlier stairwell, the stair to the attic has solid oak treads. The roof trusses have tenoned collars.
