House. Circa early to mid C17. Rendered and painted stone rubble and cob. Rag slate roof with gable ends. Stone rubble end stack on left and axial stack to right of centre with the shafts rebuilt in C20. C20 stack to extension on right. Plan: Original house comprises left hand part of existing low 4-room plan range; ground sloping down to right. The house appears to have had a 2-room and cross or through passage plan heated by end stacks. The third room on the lower right hand side may either be coeval or alternatively have been added in the later C17. The fourth room beyond to the right was added in the mid to late C20. Exterior: 2 storey. Asymmetrical 4-window front with late C19 and C20 casements. Two 3-light casements flank a C20 door and open porch to left of centre with plank door to far right. Four 2-light casements on first floor. Interior: Largely complete with C17 chamfered joists, at least one with a straight cut stop; the other stops probably buried in the plaster. The left hand fireplace has an ovolo-moulded timber lintel with stepped and tongue stops and the right hand fireplace heated by the axial stack, with a chamfered timber lintel, the stops buried by the rebuilt jambs. Two resited circa C16 church bench ends near the stair. Circa C18 roof structure with collars partly halved, lap-jointed and pegged onto the face of the principals. The apices were not inspected.
