T-plan formed by long single-depth range with added outshut and rear wing. Two low storeys and 4 bays; central doorway with thin lintel; one window to the left, 2 to the right, and 4 at 1st floor, of slightly variable size but all small and furnished with 2- light horizontal-sliding sashes with glazing bars. At the extreme left end (outside the attached garden wall) the masonry incorporates quoin stones which may be the remains of the lower half of a former doorway (which would have made a baffle entry beside the principal fireplace - see Interior below). Hipped roof with gable chimneys. The features of the rear are not of special interest. Interior: at the left gable wall is a very wide fireplace with a chamfered granite jamb to the right (former massive lintel replaced with a steel beam); right-hand half of house said to have been formerly used as cowhouse. The garden wall, attached to the front wall near the left end and at the right-hand corner, enclosing an area approx. 15 metres square, is of slurried uncoursed rubble, approx. 2 metres high, but ramped up to the right-hand corner of the house, with ridged coping and a gateway in line with the door; and attached to the outer side to the right of the gate is a set of 4 mounting steps built of granite.
