Farmhouse, C16 or earlier, altered in C17, C19 and C20. Mainly timber framed, encased in brickwork, partly of structural brickwork, roof tiled. Originally of 4 bays aligned approximately N-S, aspect W. C16 external chimney stack on rear wall at second bay from the N. Inserted chimney stack at partition between the 2 S bays, date unknown. Halls raised in C17. In the late C19 the whole building was encased in red brickwork, Flemish bond, and re-fenestrated. Later a bay was added to the N in structural brickwork, lighter in colour and set back slightly from the existing elevation, and the roof tiles re-set to blend well together. W elevation, ground floor, 3 late C19 or C19 type sash windows under shallow segmental arches, of which one is large and tripartite, glazed main door in latticework porch, glazed subsidiary door in S bay. First floor, 6 late C19 or C19 type sash windows. The interior is fully plastered, except the S bay which was partially stripped when examined in December 1982, revealing heavy close studding and traces of mutilated C17 wall paintings. No access to roof. The limited evidence available suggests a late medieval hall house of high status, with parlour/ solar bay to the N, 2-bay hall with side chimney stack, and S service end, or a C16 derivation of this plan.
