Granite rubble with granite dressings. Mostly grouted scantle slate roof, replaced with asbestos slate to front, middle and left of rear of principal range. C17 or early C18 dressed granite stack at right-hand gable end brick stacks over other gable ends. Plan: L-shaped plan plus C17 short kitchen wing at right angles in front of the former probable through passage. Originally probably an E-shaped plan with 2 wings at right angles behind the right and left-hand sides and a 2-storey porch at the rear of the through passage. The rear left-hand wing survives remodelled as a separate house, the other probable parlour wing and porch were demolished probably circa late C18 or early C19. Present plan has former hall on the right and kitchen on the left (now a separate house) and a 2-room plan house at right angles behind the left hand side. Exterior: 2 storeys. Mostly C17, C18 and C19 openings, some of the later openings have reused C17 masonry. Mostly C20 doors and windows. South-east front has gable end of kitchen wing midway. On the right are 3 bays of former 2-light chamfered mullioned windows (to both floors). Left-hand window is now a doorway, middle window still has its central mullion. Kitchen wing has external stack on the left and blocked C17 mid-floor window on the right. Other openings of this front are later and some have reused C17 chamfered masonry. Rear has wide chamfered doorway (mostly blocked) with brick rebuilding above (evidence for removal of former 2-storey porch). On the left is granite ashlar rebuilding (where parlour wing was demolished). Rear left-hand wing has 4 chamfered openings probably in-situ, a doorway in right- hand north east wall towards rear and 3 window openings in the opposite wall. Central window is partly blocked by a later porch. There is a jambstone on the right of a window opening between the middle window and the blocked C17 window on the right. Left-hand window has C17 jambstone on its left only. Right-hand gable end of house has 2 blocked C17 window openings.
