(Formerly listed as Ambrose Cottage and adjoining barn, STANDEDGE ROAD)

GV II Former house and adjoining barn. Mid C18 and perhaps earlier. Watershot hammer-dressed stone and squared rubble with graduated stone slate and slate roof. A single-depth two storey house which was made double-depth and three storey probably in the later C18. Door with square-cut stone surround. Three-light ground floor window and four-light first and second floor windows all with recessed cavetto-moulded mullions. Gable-end chimney stacks one of which is rendered. Central door in gable with square-cut surround as well as one- and two-light windows and a small brick lean-to extension. The other gable has blocked windows. The rear has a similar door and three-, six- and four-light recessed flat-faced stone mullion windows with king mullions.

The former barn predates the house; its roof runs at right angles to the house and it has a small single storey addition adjoined to the front. Recessed flat-faced mullion window openings and two blocked double-chamfered lights at attic level in the gable.
