Thatch roof hipped at left end with leanto slate roof to lofted granary and store room at right end. Stone rubble stack at right end and front lateral hall stack with brick shaft and offsets. 3- room through-passage former open hall house plan with dairy outshut to rear of lower end and small 2-storeyed projection at right end incorporating pantry with lofted granary and storeroom in front. 2 storeys. 4-window range.

Interior; much of the C19 joinery intact including old wall bench to lower end. Dairy fittings also intact. Roof structure consists of 5 trusses, the 2 trusses are smoke-blackened suggesting the house was originally open to the roof from end to end. The trusses originally had threaded purlins and morticed and tenoned collars, but were reused in the C17 re-roofing and fitted with lap-jointed collars to match those of the 3 new trusses. Unusually exposed site for this late medieval former open hall house.
