Farmhouse. Early C16, early C17 and C18. Timber-framed and rendered; double Roman tiles; a 2-storeyed jettied main range with a 1½-storey addition on the right and lean-to extensions on the rear. A large stepped stack of C17 brick, set externally on the left, has 4 square shafts with attached heads; on the right, just within the jettied range, a stack with a plain rebuilt shaft on a base of Tudor brick. 3 3-light mid-C20 standard casement windows to each floor; one gabled dormer with a C20 3-light square leaded casement window. Plank door within an open rustic porch. The jettied range has a basic 2-cell end-chimney plan: original stack on the right, with open fireplace and large plain cambered timber lintel, heated the hall, which has heavy main cross- beams with a double roll-moulding and triangle stops. Cross-entry: the rear doorway with 4-centred arched head, now blocked. Service end partition to left of entry removed; the 2 former service rooms now made into one, with a large open fireplace to the later end stack, which blocks an original diamond- mullioned window in the gable end. Jowled heads to main posts; arched braces removed. Roof with clasped side purlins and a central queen-post truss above the hall. The C17 addition on the right extends into a small rear wing and is in 3 bays, with some good close studding exposed and a blocked fireplace on the side wall. Joists to the front bay set on edge, the remainder set flat, wide and unchamfered, a curious discrepancy, since the range seems all of one date.
