Former farmhouse, built in 2 stages: mid C16 and c.1570. 2 storeys, 3-cell cross-passage entrance plan. Timber framed and plastered. Pantiled roof with axial chimney of red brick. Mainly c.1970 small-pane casements; some c.1570 diamond-mullioned windows are exposed and glazed. Glazed C20 entrance door at gable end. The hall and parlour cells are of one build, c.1570 : quite complete unmoulded framing and back-to-back open lintelled fireplaces in hall and parlour. Widely-spaced studwork without visible bracing, and wind-braced clasped-purlin roof with reduced principals. Until c.1970, the twin service doorways had heads with shallow ogee arches. The service cell is of early or mid C16, with arch-braced studwork and heavy unchamfered floor joists (now concealed); coupled-rafter roof, with evidence for both a half-hip, and a secondary queen-post system. This cell was remodelled (or perhaps reassembled) c.1600, but is certainly of earlier origin. English Vernacular Houses: E. Mercer, 1972. N.M.R.
