Full Description

A Grade II listed, mid-18th century house (reputed to have been dated 1761). Built of coursed rubble with a tiled roof and brick end chimney-stacks. Standing at two storeys it has a two-unit plan. It is possible that the right-hand room was originally a barn; the other room has a large end fireplace and contains the entrance passage with stairs to the rear of this. The two-window range is roughly regular, the windows with chamfered stone surrounds, the mullions now gone. One mullioned window survives to the rear elevation. The interior has a fireplace to the left-hand room that is corbelled with a chamfered lintel (the chamfer hacked back in part); and original joists but no ceiling beam. There is a change of level between the two rooms which are connected by a doorway with a pegged surround. (1)
