Farmhouse, late C17. Handmade brick with some stone quoins (porch and left corner), slate roof with double chimney stack behind the ridge towards the left, and right gable chimney. Early example of double-depth 4-room plan with projecting porch and lateral passage leading to staircase. Two storeys with attic and cellar, symmetrical except for fenestration; full-height gabled porch has arched doorway (perhaps altered) and studded inner door, and 1st floor window of 3 pointed lights, labels with double-returned ends over both these (gable above finished with modern brick); sashed window to the left, and sliding sash windows at 1st floor each side of porch are later insertions, but remains of former brick-mullion windows are visible: 2 on each floor to left (all 2 lights with labels) and 2 of 3 lights at ground floor to right, with linked labels; both return walls have similar 2-light windows on all floors including attic. Interior: large beams in all rooms, those in front left with cyma-stopped rounded chamfer, those in both rooms to right supported by unusual tapered strengtheners; massive chimney stack at 1st floor, corbelled out in the roof space above; principal rafter roof truss with wattle-and-daub infill; remains of diamond leaded glazing in blocked attic windows.
