Farmhouse, c1830, for Henry King probably to replace an earlier farmhouse on or near the site. Grey brick with a low pitch slate roof with deep boarded eaves and ridge stacks. In late Georgian villa style, double fronted and double pile plan. Two storeys and attics. Two dormers. Gauged brick arches to three recessed hung sashes of sixteen panes each. Three steps up to central, Tuscan portico of stone, added later and partly obscuring the double recessed round headed doorway. Six panelled door with round headed fanlight. At the rear and to the side of the house is a kitchen wing also of grey brick but the inside shows evidence of an earlier building of clunch. At the rear and forming part of the grey brick boundary wall is a clairvoyee of wrought iron railings, in line with the rear doorway and morning-room window. Inside the house has a paved hall and a cut string principal staircase with curtail, scrolled ends, square balusters and a mahogany rail. There are opposing front and rear entries. Two ground floor rooms have marble fireplaces and plaster cornice mouldings, all contemporary with the house.
