House, formerly a farmhouse. Circa 1600 with later extensions and alterations. Roughcast cob on stone footings; gabled-end thatched roof. Originally a 3-room, through-passage plan house, the higher end to the right of the passage, extended and partially rebuilt in brick in the C19, the service end with a shallow rear wing once used as a dairy, extended in the 1930s. Service end heated by external end stack with bake-oven bulge; axial stack heats both hall and inner room; brick shafts (that to the end stack reusing C17 bricks). 2 storeys. Front: 6 window range. 1st floor, 3 C19 3-light casement windows to hall and service end; inner room with 3 later casement windows under eyebrow eaves. Ground floor: all casements, 3-light to service end, 5-light to hall; 2 3-light windows and a French window to inner room. 2 C19 3-light casement windows to old rear wing (roadside, west); 1930s extension (under a slate roof) runs parallel to main range. Rear leanto, with 2 small 1st floor windows. Interior: service end with 3 ceiling cross beams, one C20, another deeply chamfered with hollow step stops, the third (above fireplace) with composite moulding (3 cavetto and 2 ovolo); fireplace lintel and a reused fragment of composite moulded beam, the back and side oven rebuilt (1930s) with attractively laid tiles and popples (cobbles). Hall: higher end passage bressumer, composite moulding (as above) but with no mortices for muntin (so presumably reused); 2 hall ceiling cross-beams, chamfered with ovolo and one fillet, scroll stops with rose motif; one cupboard with 3 fielded panels and H-hinges. Fireplaces to hall and inner room replaced. Inner room with 2 unstopped chamfered beams, and 2 elm beams, with ovolo and fillet, that could be recent. One C17 door with studded rails and fleur-de-lis strap hinges, now part of a large C20 door.
