Farmhouse, late C16, extended in C19 and C20. Timber-framed, plastered, roof tiled. Originally of 4 bays with axial chimney stack. W extension, C19 and C20, forming a T-plan, with S extension added in C20. 2 storeys throughout. 5-window range of C20 sashes, of which the 3 northern ground-floor windows are of 3 lights each. Roof half-hipped at N end, gabled at S end. Timber frame exposed internally. Jowled storeyposts, primary straight bracing in walls, stop-chamfered ceiling beams. The original clasped purlin roof is intact, half-hipped at both ends, of which the S end is now enclosed in the C20 extension. One window in upper part of original S wall is of a type of which few examples survive, with all 3 diamond mullions in situ, and intermediate holes in sill and lintel for stiffening bars for early leaded glazing. Evidence of similar windows but with mullions missing in lower S wall, lower N wall, and lower W wall of N bay. Sunk inside N of original chimney an original oak framed cupboard, of which the door is missing. Also in chimney, iron trammel with 3 hooks suspended on square iron bar set in brickwork. Documentary evidence of a former house on this site in a ruinous condition in 1580 confirms that this house was built soon afterwards. (Eland, p. 126). RCHM 8.
