Farmhouse, now house. Dated 1742 on gable of porch; enlarged in C19, altered and renovated. Coursed sandstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. Cruciform plan formed by a 2-unit main range with a broad porch-wing at the front and a service wing at the back, plus an outshut to this. Two storeys, 1:1:1 windows, symmetrical. The large 2-storey porch, with a ball finial, has a doorway with a rectangular lintel and a C20 glazed door, a tall 2-light casement window, and above this square datestone with a circular panel lettered: H/E E/1742. The flanking bays have large square 2-light casement windows with rectangular lintels and C20 joinery. The roof has a cruciform chimney stack on the centre of the ridge and ball finials on both gables. The west side of the rear wing has an outshut under a catslide roof. INTERIOR: unusual 2-unit plan (for the date) with a central chimney stack (which formerly had relatively small back-to-back fireplaces); stone-vaulted former dairy in outshut of rear wing; C19 staircase ascending along rear wall of 2nd unit; crudely-shaped chamfered purlins in main range, with run-out stops, and machine-sawn purlins in rear wing.
