Central entrance with a 3-centred arch composed of long irregular stone voussoirs surmounted by a horizontal drip moulding. To either side, uPVC 6-pane windows in small openings with stone lintels, and a small fire window beside the main stack. Above the entrance, a similar window within a small stone-coped dormer, and one larger window to the bays each side, their gables now replaced with a cat-slide roof. Raised stone coped gable to the upper end of the house, terminating in a stone stack. A stack at the lower end has been removed. Various irregularly placed windows to the rear, including a central stair window. The farm building attached in line to the lower end has one large opening, the walls apparently heightened to provide a loft. External stone access steps at the gable end.
Interior not accessible at the time of inspection.
Included as a farmhouse of traditional late C17 form with a central cross entrance, retaining a general character and some features of that period.
