House. Dated 1734 with C17 remains and mid-late C19 refenestration. Coursed rubble with ashlar dressings, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys with attic, 3 x 1½ bays. Quoins. Central 6-panel door in plain surround with entablature and moulded cornice, stone plaque with lettering " R A " 1734 above. 4-pane sashes in slightly projecting sawn stone surrounds. Stone gutter brackets, shaped kneelers, moulded gable copings, corniced end stacks. Rear: sawn stone surround to stair window, otherwise recessed chamfered mullion windows; a mullion and transom window to half cellar, left, and a 2-light window to cellar, centre. Right return: the lower walling is of less well dressed stone, indicating the C17 structure, raised in smaller stones. To first floor, right, a 4-pane sash in C18 ashlar architrave; a similar surround to a smaller 6-pane gable window. Interior: narrow entrance hall; inserted partition wall between hall and living room, left. Large fireplace with segmental tripartite arch with joggled joints and incised in imitation of voussoirs. Parlour to front right: a fine built-in cupboard in centre of rear wall, of pine, with fluted-pilasters, keyed round arch to surround, fielded panel doors, ribbed coving to interior and shaped shelves. Rear room, right: dairy with stone shelves; a timber partition with reused C17 panelling between dairy and central stair- well. Fine staircase of 3 straight flights, the lower 5 steps of stone; knopped balusters and moulded handrail. Window shutters and 6-panel doors. First floor: access to the attic storey, far left. The C17 house was of 2 bays with large fireplace to living room/kitchen left, unheated parlour right and dairy under a rear outshut. The 1734 alterations included raising the house to 2 full storeys with attic, and building an extra room onto the rear left. The central door opened directly into the living room and a fireplace was put into the parlour - the probable surround now reset upstairs. The staircase, built-in cupboard and architraves to right return also belong to this period. C19 alterations included partitioning the living room to form an entrance passage, refenestration and enlargement of the doorway.
