Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

An early 19th century two-storey five-bay house retaining historic character with good quality stonework.

West gable: a side entrance door and a round-topped late 19th century timber window with stained-glass. The gable ends both show the outline of a pair of rear/north angles that must have belonged to a much smaller earlier house before an 1814 rebuilding - also a pair of blocked-up windows toward the rear of the gable ends.

The house emulates Georgian fashion but with a local character.
