Farmhouse. Probably C16. Timber-frame, brick infill four panels high, brick rear elevation, slate roofs, end stack to left, large ridge stack to right of centre. U-plan with wings projecting north-west on either side of two-bay centre range. Two storeys and attics. North-west elevation: virtually symmetrical, the cross-wings have jettied first floors, that to the right from a moulded bressummer. Angle struts from posts to ties and wall-plate. Left wing: central late C19 3-light case- ment to ground floor, a similar window to left side of first floor with a single light C20 window to the right. Main range: tallet stairs to first floor door on right hand side; iron 3-light mid-C19 casement to left of centre, one 2-light iron mid-C19 casement to left side of first floor; mid-C20 plain tiled porch and 4-light mullioned window and beaded door into its right hand side. Right wing: gable, unlike that of left wing, has V-struts from collar. Ground floor has single light late C20 window to left and ledged contemporary stable door to right. First floor has two sets of late C20 4-light casements with diagonal saltire cross glazing bars. Late C20 attic light between V-struts to gable apex.

Interior: principal ground floor room in main range has stone flagged floor, deeply chamfered beams dividing the ceiling into nine panels.

Right service wing is divided longitudinally; left wing, laterally; winding dog-leg stairs rise through left wing at its junction with main range. Blocked triangular headed entrance door to right hand wing is masked by tallet stairs. (RCHM Vol II, p 138).
