Former farmhouse; late C15 or early C16 core with major remodelling of late C17. A mid C19 cross-wing at the left hand end. 1 storey and attics to main range. Originally of 3-cell plan; the former parlour cell was rebuilt in C19. Timber framed and plastered. Pantiled roofs with axial chimneys of red brick; one gabled casement dormer. C19 casements. Stable-type entrance door at rear. A greatly-altered open hall house: the hall-has an end wall with exposed arch windbraced studwork. The open truss has been removed, but one post has part of a chamfered arch-brace, rising from a pilaster which has been cut back. There is evidence for a rear cross-entry doorway with adjacent spere. A large lintelled open fireplace in the former cross-passage (the lintel is reused from a timber framed chimney). In late C17 an upper floor was inserted in the hall with joists chamfered and laid flat; the service cell was demolished and rebuilt larger, and the whole roof rebuilt with butt purlins.
