Not shown on the 1839 Tithe Map, the house is likely to have been built c.1860, apparently as a farmhouse, although much of its land is now gone.
House. 2-storey, slightly asymmetrical 3-bay front. Roughly coursed rubblestone with buttered pointing; slate roof and rendered integral end stacks. Windows all original 4-pane sashes with slate cills, directly below eaves on first floor and with slate lintels to ground floor; entrance slightly offset to left has late C20 door. Single-storey addition on left has large C20 window to front. Fenestration pattern of main house repeated to first floor of rendered rear wall.
Interior not inspected at time of Survey.
Included as a well-preserved example of a later C19 small farmhouse, still exhibiting the plan-form and many of the features of farmhouses built in the decades around 1800, a distinctive local building type important in this region.
