House. Late medieval and C17. Timber-framed, part weatherboard, part render and part brick. Low pitched gabled slate roof with substantial central ridge line stack. 2 single-storey lean-to extensions on rear where main eaves line varies in height. Shallow projecting stair tower on rear. Of 2 storeys but ground slopes away to rear. Patterned pargeted panels on upper part of rear elevation. INTERIOR: N part of house has remains of late medieval, former jettied cross-wing with cambered tie-beam. This was enclosed in early-mid-C17 to form regular box frame 2-storey dwelling. The rear of this has projecting lean-to roofed stair tower, the winder stair and central newel post of which survives. Contemporary central stack with salt cupboard recess. Framing generally of good quality but some elm. C19 replacement roof with remnants of C17 rafters still in situ. Floor over former cross-wing suggests this was a former 3-storey.
