Former farmhouse. Mid C17, with C18 and early C19 additions. Timber-framed and rendered; thatched roof with decorated ridge. 1½ storeys; basic 2-cell lobby-entrance plan, extended at both ends. An internal chimney-stack with a plain red brick shaft. 2 dormers with plain bargeboards, spike finials, and 2-light plain casement windows. 3 2-light and one double 2-light window to the ground floor, all with plain mid-C20 casements. Entrance into a half- glazed semi-circular porch with a thatched roof sloping into the main roof. Plain framing exposed inside: studding with no middle rail. To the right of the stack, main beam with small chamfer and scroll stops with groove; joists on edge; timber lintel to open fireplace with scroll-stops and double groove. An original 3-light window in the former end wall, with small square mullions and little diamond-shaped wooden glazing-bars between, has been slightly repositioned to give access to the added end bay, which has primary braces and bisected studs. To the left of the stack, a similar ceiling and plain lintel to the open fireplace. A C19 lean-to along part of rear, and a room added circa 1970. Adjoining the left gable end, a range of single-storey outbuildings in red brick and flint, now partly converted to living accommodation.
