Farmhouse. Circa 1600 altered mid C20, in poor condition at time of survey (May 1984). Rendered over rubble and cob, slate roof, coped verges, brick stacks gable ends and large external stack on East wall of South East wing. U-plan facing roughly North with coeval wings at rear, lean-to single storey porch addition on Scuth front.

Single storey blue lias random rubble wing on North East corner, pantiled roof, brick stack gable end, C20 door and window.

Interior: not sighted. Said to contain much of interest though features partly obscured by plasterboard. Cross passage stud and panel partition moulded on both sides with deparessed 4-centred head doorway centrally placed opposite opening in similar screen obscured by plaster. Eight panel compartment ceiling to East of cross passage, framed partition to West gable end room also with framed 8 panel compartment ceiling which does not extend to the other framed ceiling but ends sole 1.20 metres short of it in a full beam. Gable end fireplaces blocked, winder stair at East gable end, dogleg stair in North West wing. Jointed cruck truss roof, with remains of plasterwork frieze in what was originally the main bedroom. Several ovolo moulded wooden mullion windows have been reset in the nearby farmbuilding, not included. (VAG Report, unpublished SRO, October 1980).
