Integral stone gable-end stack with brick shaft. 3-bay cruck-framed hall house range. EXTERIOR: single-storey and attic. Entrance in gable to south-east; stone stack with brick additions and doorway to right. Weatherboarded frame over. Left return side: square- and rectangular-panelled framing 2 panels high with brick and wattle infill, framed window opening. Framing masked to left by lean-to. Right return side: C19 brick with oak-framed mullion window, dormer with 2-light casement. Rear gable-end: brick, with 2-light casement with brick segmental arch, at both floors. INTERIOR: bay 1 (north) has ground-floor lateral cross-frame of door post, middle rail, chamfered and arched door-head, slots for board infill. Simple large section floor joists. C19 winder staircase. Single trenched-purlin roof with swept wind brace. Diagonal ridge. Rafters to south pitch raised and restored. North internal truss of 2 full cruck blades, diminishing backing-rafters, notched and pegged upper and lower collars, inserted stud and middle rail and boarded door below collar, low tie beam with 3 posts to sill plate with middle rails and doorway. Infilled with wattle and daub at attic level and with butt-jointed boards at lower level. Ground-floor frame chamfered to bay 1, and moulded to bay 2.

Former open hall with inserted C17 floor of deep-chamfered bridging beam and cross-beam set on deep-chamfered planted rail. South internal truss of 2 full cruck blades, backing rafters, notched and pegged upper and lower collars.
