House. Circa late C17, extended in C19 and restored in late C20. 

Flint rubble with red brick dressings, brick dentil eaves and moulded brick plinth. Pantile roof with gabled ends. Brick gable end stacks. 

Plan: small 2-room plan house facing east. The large left hand (south) room is heated from a large gable end fireplace; the smaller right hand (north) room also has a gable end stack but this might be a later insertion. The present C20 straight staircase between the 2 rooms has an entrance lobby at the front. There is said to have been a winder staircase at the side of the large left end stack. The single storey wing behind the left hand room (and the pair of cottages not included in the listing adjoining at the right (north ) end) are C19 additions. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window east front. 2 C19 16-pane sashes on first floor and 2 large C20 16-pane sashes on the ground floor in openings with segmental brick arches. C20 flint end brick porch at centre. Broad buttress on right hand corner with weathered brick set offs. The rear (west) elevation has 3 C20 casements, some blocked openings, brick buttress to left and single storey, flint and brick wing to right with gable-ended black pantile roof. The south gable end has diaper brickwork high up in gable, C20 casements and C20 conservatory. On the opposite north end there is a Cl9 pair of cottages with a lower roofline. Interior: altered in C20 but the large left hand (south) room has a chamfered axial beam with bar-fluted stops, a stopped chamfer half-beam over the brick fireplace which has a large oak lintel with a scratch moulding on the lower edge. Chamfered ceiling beam in the chamber above and reused timbers used as joists. Original late C17 4-bay principal rafter roof structure, the straight collars with halved lapped dovetail joints to the principals which are morticed and tenoned at their apices and 2 tiers of tenoned purlins. The principals and common rafters are set on large timber wall-plates. Some of the original common rafters survive but are reused and there is now a ridgeboard.
