Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

This early 19th century five-bay house retains its proportions and remains a cohesive linear farm group. With original windows, internal floor plan, historic timber partitions and joinery this is a good surviving example.

Two-storey, five-bay house with two-storey outbuildings in line to east and west. Ruinous shed and pigsty to south west.

The house emulates the polite architecture of Georgian fashion but with a continuing local character.
