Entrance has C17 nail-studded plank door with fleur-de-lys pointed strap hinges under C19 gabled hood. Prominent brown brick axial ridge stack immediately to left, its width indicated by rubblestone visible in back wall. Interior: chamfered spine beam and heavy joists to left ground-floor room; deep-chamfered spine beam to centre room. Right ground- floor room has oak winder staircase; moulded handrail and turned balusters on first floor probably early C18. Collar and tie beam roof truss exposed between first and second bays from right on first floor. Demolished bay is said to have had oak-panelled parlour on ground floor. Graded II* on account of exceptionally well-preserved small-panel framing. Eric Mercer, English Vernacular Houses (H.M.S.O. 1975), p. 196.
