Listed building

The house retains significant historic features internally, and an exterior with historic character, which together with its outbuilding and wellhead makes a cohesive group contributing to the roadside setting.

House of early origins, possible medieval, developed in 1725. This building is shown on the Richmond Map of 1795. Later converted to use as farm outbuilding, including reduction of chimneystacks and addition of L-plan wing.

Door lintel incised 1725. Wellhead in yard to north, with stone slab top. Rear (north) elevation: rubble wall. 20th century agricultural shed obscuring most of rear. Outbuildings to west: corrugated iron roof, rubble walls. Used as an agricultural shed. Corbelled fireplaces, with timber lintels, to each gable on ground floor. West gable fire retains timber pot holder. Smaller corbelled fireplace to first floor west gable. Some rough hewn floor and roof timber remaining.
