Symmetrical late C19 single storey rear wings added when house formed 2 cottages. Older part is a 3- unit, lobby-entry plan house facing S, with unheated service room at W end. Timber frame plastered and steep old red tile gabled roof. 2 storeys, 2 windows roughcast, false front on S rises above level of old eaves. All windows on front have ogee headed 2-light wooden windows with transoms and iron plate casements (painted imitation window at upper right). 2 3-sided 2 storeys bays with ogee headed blind recesses in sides. Central 4-panel flush beaded door in simple pilastered surround with flat hood on shaped brackets. Axial beams chamfered and stopped, on Ground floor. Stair rises to rear of massive central chimney. Exposed close studding and long curved tension braces on inside of W wall and similar bracing in partition in same upper room. Clasped purlin roof. Named Juicy Brook house in Tithe Award of 1842. An historic C16 timberframed house, modernised in the C17, later disguised as a Gothic 'eye-catcher' in the C18 and little- altered since. Picturesque element in the landscape and part of the group of historic structures around the country house of Briggens.
