History

Originally a timber-framed house, shown on the 1841 Tithe map. A new block was added at right angles in the mid-late C19, the timber-framed section becoming the rear wing.

Exterior

Two-storey 2-window house of random stone under a slate roof with stone end stacks and boarded eaves. The entrance is to the E gable end, with garden front facing N. The garden front has full-height canted bay windows with hipped rooflets, containing hornless 12-pane sash windows; hornless 16-pane sash windows aligned above rising to eaves. Gabled entrance front has a panelled door with plain overlight offset to L, under a long timber lintel; 16-pane hornless sash above. The W gable end has a hornless sash window offset to R, possibly a stairlight.

The rear wing, of one-and-a-half storeys, is timber-framed with large panels, the S gable end of rubble stone. Slate roof, stone end stack. The E side, adjacent to the front entrance, is 2-window, the tall 6-pane wooden windows probably late C20; similar upper storey windows aligned above. Part-glazed lean-to on W side, detail not seen.
