Thatch roof gabled to left end, half hipped to front and rear wings. 2 rendered rubble stacks with brick shafts and 2 rubble stacks with brick shafts. Plan: originally either 2 or 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the left. Hall stack backs onto the passage. At its higher end is a cross wing of uncertain date since it has no dateable features but probably later C17 or C18, and behind it is a smaller rear wing, probably C18 or early C19. In the C20 the internal room arrangement was altered and the passage changed. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with wing projecting from right-hand end. Later C20 small-paned 2 and 3-light casements. C20 glazed door to left of centre. The wing has windows on its inner face and a row of pigeon holes on its end wall. A C19 outbuilding projects from the left-hand end of the house in an L-shaped range forming a courtyard. The rear elevation of the house has a wing projecting at the centre and extending from it is an L-shaped section of wall with a row of 8 bee-boles in it. Interior: considerably altered but hall retains its large Cl7 open fireplace with slate lintel and chamfered and stopped ceiling beams. According to N. Alcock's cruck catalogue there is a cruck roof timber, but this was not seen during the inspection.
