The house here is bisected by the parish and district boundary. It has been dated to around 1700 with details dating to around 1800. The flint construction is topped with a pantile roof and stone quoins show the original extent of the house. Sash windows have replaced the original brick frames. The interior has stopped and chamfered beams but there have been so many 20th century alterations that little is now of interest. The house also incorporates some mysterious medieval stonework.
