Farmhouse. In 2 builds: the south cell is C15, the north cell a C16 addition. Timber-framed, part plastered and part with modern cement render; the north gable end is encased in colourwashed brick to eaves level. Pantiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. 2-cell form. 3 windows, C18 3-light casements with large panes. 3 boarded doors. Internal axial stack. The earlier part comprises a former open hall. The open truss has a cambered tie beam with heavy arched braces. There is a queen-post roof: the collar of the open truss carries a king post which supports a ridge piece, a very unusual form (cf. Poplar Farmhouse, Oakley). All the medieval roof components are smoke-blackened. At the south extremity of the east wall is a blocked external doorway with 4- centre arched head, indicating that the medieval service end has been lost. The C16 cell has some close studding, a number of blocked original windows and an intact roof structure. C16 newel stairs (both flights).
