Farmhouse. Mid-to late C16 and mid-C17 with C18 and mid-to late C19 alterations and additions. Timber framed with red brick nogging, partly refaced, underbuilt and rebuilt and extended in red brick and red sandstone.

Plain tile roofs. Framing: closely-spaced uprights with middle rail.

Range of 3 framed bays aligned approximately north-south with wing to south- west and C17 wing to north-west. U plan, filled in in the late C19 or early C20. 2 storeys. North front: left-hand cross wing with external brick lateral stack and integral brick-end stack. Brick ridge stack to C17 range to.

right. Left-hand gabled range with 4-light wooden casements to each floor. Underbuilt (C18 brick) jetty with moulded bressumer. Blocked first floor window (present window offset to right). Refaced C17 range to right; 2-and 3-light segmental-headed wooden casements, 2 to first-floor and 3 to ground floor. Left-hand return front of Cl7 range with timber framing and jettied gable with moulded bressumer and collar and tie-beam truss with queen struts.

Lean-to C19 porch in angle with segmental-headed half-glazed door. Left-hand return front with irregular fenestraticn and doorway off-centre to left. Infill range with external brick end stick. Interior: ground-floor ceiling frame in northern-most 2 bays of eastern range with ovolo-moulded cross beams, closely spaced ovolo-moulded joists, and central carved boss consisting of a grotesque mask with dragons at each corner. Dining room has deeply-chamfered cross-beam ceil- ing with large broach stops, and C17 panelling. Some reused C17 panelling in hall. Old panelled and boarded doors. East and south range have exposed wall plates with closely-spaced peg holes which suggest that the former framing in these walls was similar to that still surviving in the north front (i.e. closely- spaced studs with middle rail).
