Plan: The plan of the original house has 2 principal rooms with an entrance cross- passage between the 2 rooms, a shallow pantry behind the small parlour to the right; the larger left hand room was probably the kitchen with a staircase boxed in against the back wall. The kitchen is now in the rear wing which was added in circa mid C19 behind the right hand room. The wing contained a stable and cartshed with an open end at the back and a hay loft above. Probably also in the mid C19 a single storey byre was added to the left side of the house and in the early C20 a piggery was built on the rear north east side of the yard at the back of the house. Exterior: The house is 2 storeys with a symmetrical 3-window front of small circa late C19 4-pane sashes with granite lintels and cills and a central doorway with a 4- panel moulded door and a small C20 gabled brick porch. To the left the back wall of the single storey byre which has a low hipped roof and a fixed 4-pane window. The front of the byre facing the yard has a plank door to the left and a wide doorway to the right. The rear elevation of the house has an early C19 16-pane first floor sash and the rear wing has a C19 horizontally sliding sash with glazing bars on the inside wall next to the rear doorway and a flight of stone steps up to the loft doorway which has a boarded door. The end of the rear wing is open with a cart shed on the ground floor and a corrugated iron-clad loft above. Interior: The right hand room has a pretty Victorian cast iron chimney-piece with a cambered arch with a keyblock and decorated with roses and cherries. The left hand room has a C20 chimney-piece in place of the old range; the staircase is boxed in at the back of the room. Including the detached piggery to the north east facing the farmyard; it is a long rectangular building with agrouted scantle slate roof with red clay ridge tiles. It has 5 doorways facing the yard, the right hand doorway is to the feeding passage which runs along the back inside. Also including the adjoining rear farmyard wall which fronts the road; it is whitewashed granite rubble and has a pair of square section granite gate-piers to the farmyard gateway.
