History

Probably built as a 2-unit house in the second half of the C17 and earlier than the barn opposite the house, which is dated 1691. The original mullioned windows were subsequently mainly replaced, probably in the C18, by windows under wooden lintels whose shape suggests they were vertical sliding sashes. An additional unit was added at the upper end in the C19 and a lower rear wing was added at the downhill gable end soon afterwards and is shown on the 1871 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

A 2-storey house on a sloping site with integral rear stair turret, of rubble stone and steep slate roof. A massive stepped external brick stack is at the downhill gable end (partly obscured by a C19 wing), and there are stone ridge stacks centre-L and at the L end. The original C17 house has a doorway L of centre in an added lean-to porch with a replaced boarded door. The windows have wooden lintels in the lower storey and have mainly replaced 2-light casements. To the R of the porch are 2 hall windows, with a parlour window to the L. The upper storey has 2 windows and, above the porch, a blocked small window with a C17 dressed stone surround. To the L of the parlour is a vertical joint, then a second parlour added in the C19, with a replaced casement below a tooled stone lintel. The L (uphill) gable end has French doors under a segmental head and windows upper R and L under stone lintels.

The R (downhill) gable end has a lean-to, with inserted window and doorway, against the lower wing, which is set back from the main range. The wing has a replaced upper storey window and brick end stack. The rear of the house is dominated by the lower gabled stair turret, which has a coped gable on moulded kneelers. In the gable end is a 2-light window in the lower level and blocked windows in dressed surrounds above and to the L side wall. On the R side of the turret is an added lean-to, while behind the lower wing at the downhill end is an added conservatory.

Interior

Hall and parlour have stop-chamfered beams. The parlour retains a stone-lintelled fireplace. Another stone lintelled fireplace is in the C19 parlour at the upper end. The original stair turret retains a stone winding stair.
