Plan: 2 room house with central lobby and stair, and on the left a 1 room plan cottage addition, probably originally a shippon (there is evidence for a former loading doorway in the present first floor window position). C20 shop adjoins at the right, not included. 2 storeys. Overall 3 window front: original symmetrical 2 window front with central doorway and 1 window front cottage, left, with a doorway on its right. C20 ledged doors and old 12-pane horizontal sliding sashes, those to the house probably original. There is a painted advertisement mural on the left hand gable end. Interior not inspected. The wall at the front is rubble and earth, enclosing a shallow rectangular area in front of the house. In front of the house doorway is a gateway swept in from the road to roughly-hewn granite monolithic piers and with a circa early C19 wrought iron gate with arrowhead finials over the bars which are closer set to the bottom of the gate. One of very few unspoiled small houses fronting onto a main road in this part of Cornwall.
