Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

A good example of an historic farm group retaining historic character and features, including an early 19th century farm house with fine stonework, and contributing to rural streetscape character.

Five-bay, two-storey house with two-bay, single storey extension to the north, farm wing to the south, fouor-bay, two-storey wing east/west on the north side.

The house emulates Georgian fashion but with a continuing local character.

The pale stonework to the main house frontage reputedly comes from Penryn in Cornwall.
