Squared rubble stack with dripmoulds at right gable end. 3 projecting front lateral stacks. The 2 left-hand ones are rendered with brick shafts. That to the right has tall rubble shaft with tapering cap. Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the left. The house may have been built as an open hall with central hearth but evidence for this was not accessible at time of survey. The hall and lower room are both heated by fireplaces on their front walls the hall with an adjoining window bay. The inner room has a gable-end fireplace with newel stairs in a projection at the rear. A further room heated by fireplace on the front wall was added at the lower end in the C18. C19 outshot built on at the rear subdivided into 3 cottages in circa late C19 and converted back in later C20. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 6-window front with the addition at left-hand end recessed and projecting hall window adjoining its stack to right of centre. C19 1, 2 and 3-light casements, some with small panes. 3 C19 or early C20 plank doors, one to addition to left, one to passage left of centre and one towards right-hand end.
