Two houses, originally a farmhouse. Late C17 or early C18 with later alterations and extensions. Roughly coursed rubble; tiled roofs. 2 storeys. Plan: one long range with lower front wing to right; the former originally a 3-unit, baffle-entry farmhouse of which the parlour survives (to right); vertical masonry joint to left of entry indicates rebuilding of the late-C18 or early-C19 (see window openings); low front wing (rendered) probably of similar date. 3 ridge stacks to long range and end stack to wing, all of red brick. Front: irregular fenestration, 3-window range; these and the three ground-floor windows with stone surrounds, the mullions removed and casements. Wide doorway with planked door. Low wing with mullioned 2-light window to 1st floor and larger (sash) window below; wide doorway with planked door. Rear with three small one and 2-light casement windows and a large late-C20 glazed door and window (to kitchen). Some ceiling beams survive; not properly inspected internally. This building occupies a prominent position at the top of Cromford Hill and groups with Nos 142-50 opposite. It is one of the small number of houses that remain from the pre-Arkwright hamlet of Cromford.
