Detached house, probably originally a farmhouse. Late C16, extensively remodelled and enlarged. Cob and brick, all plastered; gabled-end slate roofs. The early plan is difficult to reconstruct : possibly a 3-room, through-passage plan house with a rear service-end wing, heated by an external lateral stack (now an end stack to the rear range). Another stack to the rear of the front range may have been a rear lateral stack heating the hall. The wing was extended, probably in the early C19 to form overall a double-depth plan house. Both stacks with brick shafts, largely plastered. 3 storeys. Front: irregular fenestration set under a dentil cornice which returns to left-hand side only. Second floor : 3 windows, 2 with 12-pane hornless sashes, 1 with a 2- paned horned sash. Three 12-pane hornless sash windows to first floor. 2 similar sash windows to ground floor, and a gabled, tiled, bargeboarded porch; panelled door. Left-hand side elevation : brick stair turret set to right of former service end external stack; 12-pane hornless sash window and 1 round-heated window to 2nd floor; open latticework porch to side entrance. Rear: with 3 storeyed canted bay separately hip-roofed with 2:2:2 pane horned sash window to second floor;8:16:8 pane hornless sash window to first floor; 8 pane hornless sash side windows to ground floor with garden door to centre. Right-hand elevation with two 16-pane hornless sash windows; and late-C19 and C20 sash and casement windows. Interior: ceiling cross beams, 1 with mortices for former screen, but possibly not in situ; another with hollow step stops. Dog-leg staircase with stick balusters (early C19); other early C19 joinery includes panelled doors. Roof of front range, probably late C18, morticed and pegged at apex.
