Full description

September 1999.
Timber framed house on three cell cross passage plan, with original chimneystack and upper floor. Good inglenook fireplace with ruddlling and lining. Details suggests early 17th century yet all visible original windows, including one in the parlour, are unglazed diamond mullions. Parlour end has a number of interesting features not fully visible which might perhaps suggest an earlier date for this end, but which may be due to later alterations; there is one overall roof, of the main period. Once separate servants building, of same date, joined to house in 18th century.
Timber framed barn, late 17th century, now converted to house; remains of outbuilding.
