Detached three-bay two-storey farmhouse, built c.1860. Roughcast rendered walls with render quoins. Pitched slate roof with rendered chimneystacks. Timber sash windows with stone stills.

Appraisal

This substantial farmhouse represents the adaptation of classical house design into the vernacular tradition. The fenestration and round-headed fanlight enliven the façade. The house and outbuildings form an interesting group of farm related structures.
