Shown on the 1840 Tithe Map, the farmhouse appears to have been built c1825 as suggested by the date on the overmantel to the fireplace in the left ground-floor room.
Of roughly coursed rubblestone, roughcast to right gable end; slate roof with integral end stacks and coped verges to right. 2 storeys. Double-pile plan. 3-window front; 4-paned sashes, of reduced proportions to first floor, ground-floor windows replaced by late C20 top-hung casements. Central entrance through gabled porch, which has 4-paned sashes to side walls and inner C20 4-panel door.
Left ground-floor room has slate lintel to altered fireplace with the inscription "H.M. Williams/ AD1825" to incised keystone and incised medallion decoration. Central staircase with stick balusters and turned newel may be a later C19 alteration.
Included as a securely dated example of a modest early C19 lowland farmhouse, built within the vernacular tradition.
