Full Description

A Grade II listed house (formerly house with byre attached) dated to the early to mid 18th century, the byre added in the 19th century (and converted to residential use c. 1930s). Built of roughly coursed gritstone with stone slabs to the front slope of the roof (between stone coping kneelers and stacks which mark the length of the original house), Staffordshire blue clay tiles elsewhere. The house plan is of two rooms with a central stair/entrance hall and two storeys throughout. The original house has a regular three-window range, the windows all of two lights with stone surrounds and mullions and 19th century casements, and a half-glazed door in a similar surround. The former byre is a single window range, both windows of three lights, with casements, under a large stone lintel. The left gable has an 18th century small pane casement window in a stone surround, the rear wall with one tiny window only, lighting the stairs, with quarter panes. The interior has chamfered and stepped cross beams; a small fielded panel cupboard, one to each of the main rooms; a corbelled stone fireplace to the left-hand room, another to the right damaged by a later insertion. The house is understood to contain its flag floors and splat baluster staircase. (1)
