Small farmhouse, now house. Later C17, altered. Coursed thin sandstone rubble, stone slate roof. Rectangular 2-bay end-baffle-entry plan, the 2nd cross-gabled (like a wing). Two very low storeys and 2 windows; with the doorway at the left end, a 2-light casement window to the right and another above but offset to the left, a ragged break in the masonry between the bays at 1st floor, and a gabled 2nd bay which has a 2-light casement at 1st floor only. Gable chimney to left and parlour chimney at right-hand corner. The right-hand return wall has a casement window to the front bay and a 3-light mullioned window to the rear bay (now protected with external glazing), both with simple hoodmoulds. The rear has mullioned windows of 2 and 4 lights at ground floor (to the former dairy and housepart respectively) and a mullioned 4-light window above (lacking one mullion), all these with simple hoodmoulds. INTERIOR: the housepart has the heck of a former inglenook, and an C18 stone fireplace; the partition between the bays is timber-framed; the former parlour has a cross-corner fireplace; and the former partition between this room and the dairy has been removed. HISTORY: an unusual example of a typical late C17 farmhouse on a very small scale but with a heated parlour; and similar to Heyes Farmhouse, Grimshaw Road (qv) in having a cross-gabled bay to a rectangular 2-unit plan.
