Farmhouse. Probably late C17, possibly with earlier origins and with later alterations. Timber-framed, faced in sandstone rubble and finished in roughcast, stone stacks to left and rear sides and two brick ridge stacks, one to right of centre and one to right end; slate roofs. L-plan with main ranged aligned east/west and wing projecting southwards at west end. Two storeys, 1:4 windows. Regularly spaced 2-pane casements with segmental heads to ground floor, central early C20 porch. Interior: C17 panelling to part of first floor, collar trusses, some with V-struts, blocked chamfered segmentally-headed opening at top of main staircase; principal room to left of porch has beams with run-out stop chamfers; ceiling beams of ground floor of later cross-wing have plain deep chamfers; moulded beams, probably re-used, to bay forming junction of the two ranges near secondary staircase, may alternatively be remains of a solar to main range.
