House, early C17, altered in C18/19 and C20. Timber framed, roughcast rendered (front faced with brick and roughcast rendered), roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 4 bays aligned approx. E-W, aspect N with axial chimney stack in second bay from E, external chimney stack on W gable end. Rear elevation, C20, forming a T plan. Extension c.1968 in SW angle. Single storey lean-to extension to E and SE, roofed partly with red clay pantiles, partly with red clay plain tiles. Single storey with attics. Ground floor, 4 C19/20 casement windows, 2 more in gabled dormers with C19/20 bargeboards. Some framing exposed internally. Jowled posts. Axial beams plain-chamfered with lamb's tongue stops. Studded partition removed between the 2 west ground floor rooms (originally, the parlour and 'hall'). The original chimney stack consisted of a single hearth facing W, forming a lobby-entrance to the N. It has been reduced for a coal-burning grate, and a C20 hearth has been built back to back with it, re-using C16 bricks. This room to the E of the stack was originally an unheated service room, and still has 2 unglazed windows in the rear wall, complete with 2 diamond mullions each, now fitted with C20 leaded glass and enclosed by the C20 rear extension. This is an early C17 plan, having the lobby-entrance between the service room and the 'hall', and the survival of diamond mullions suggests that it was originally a dwelling of low status, not later than 1630.
