Former farmhouse. Early C16 and later. Apparent 3-bay timber frame largely re-assembled in c.1980. Brick nogging to facade. One flint gable-end with brick quoins and pantile roof. 2 storeys with attic. Scattered C20 casement windows and 2 boarded doors to front. To rear, 2 4-light roll-moulded and hollow-chamfered mullion windows and one 3-light plain-chamfered C17 mullion window. Gables retain elements of original roof with solid braces rising to the collars to form arches. Off-centre axial stack and rebuilt gable- end stack. C20 lean-to to rear. Ground floor fireplaces with ashlar jambs and chamfered bressumers. Very fine late-medieval roll-moulded beams in north west room. Wide chamfers elsewhere with simple run-out stops.
