Farmhouse. Probably C16 origins, rebuilt in early C19. Plastered cob or rubble; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; coated slate roof, replaced by corrugated asbestos over kitchen. L-shaped house with main block, comprising 2 rooms with central cross passage and end stacks facing south-east. To rear of left (south-west) end is rear service block which contains the stairs connected to the cross passage with service rooms to rear, the largest with a large outer projecting lateral stack. Kitchen is set in angle of 2 wings with a lean-to roof against the back of the main block and has large projecting end stack. The stairs and service room appear to occupy the shell of a C16 farmhouse, the rest was built in the early C19. 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window front of 16-pane sashes. Central doorway has part-panelled, part-glazed C19 door and overlight, panelled reveals and doorcase with shaped cornice and moulded entablature. Projecting eaves on shaped brackets and roof is gable-ended. The south-west side is dominated by the large probably C16 stack with its chimney shaft intact but since extended. To right is a secondary part-glazed, part-panelled door with hipped and slate-roofed porch. The windows include C19 12 and 16-pane sashes or casements with glazing bars. Interior includes much C19 joinery including the stick baluster stair. No earlier features are exposed. From the left (south-west) end of the front a high plastered cob wall with interlocking tile coping projects forward (south-eastwards) along the left side of the front garden.
