House. Probably C18 or with earlier fabric and with C19 additions and alterations. Roughcast stone rubble. Thatched half-hipped roof. Rendered axial stack to right of centre, and rendered small lateral stack on front left. Plan is now 2 rooms and central stairs beside axial stack which probably headed larger right-hand room. The smaller left-hand room is now heated from a small later lateral stack on front. The original entrance, now a window, is at centre in front of stairs. In early C19 (shown on photograph of mid C19) a leanto outshut was added to rear of left-hand room, and was heightened in C20 with a flat roof. Situated at right angles to road. 2 storeys. 2-window south front, windows disposed towards the right end. Late C19 or early C20 4-pane sashes, right-hand ground floor is small C20 top hung window. Plank door to right of centre. Very thin lateral stack to left. West gable end facing road has one late C19 or early C20 4-pane sash on each floor, and C19 glazed and panelled door to left. The 2-storey flat roof outshut to left has one 4-pane sash on each floor. Interior: right-hand room has large roughly hewn cross beam, left-hand room has unhewn cross beam and another beam boxed in. Straight stairs at centre rising from former entrance lobby. Feet of trusses bosed in showing in first floor and roof spaces not accessible at time of survey. This is one of the few thatched roof buildings to have survived in the centre of Moretonhampstead and as such it is important to the character of the town.
