A house built c1170 with late 18th and 19th century alterations was restored in 1878 and again during the 20th century. The building is double range in plan and two storeys high with an attic range lit by segmental headed windows on the southern gable. It is constructed of dressed stone and brick with two double pitch pantile roofs with chimney stacks at the northern gable and between the ranges. The principle facade to Steep Hill has a four window range with a casement to the far left, two central sashes and a two light Norman round headed window with a central column and decorated capitals under a deep hood mould. The ground floor has two central entrance doorways, the left door is an 18th century insertion with an attached bow shop window and the right door is round headed with single shafts and crocket capitals under a truncated hood. To the far right is a casement shop window with a wooden pilaster surround and cornice and to the far left is a partially blocked small two light casement window. Although it was formerly known as Aaron the Jew's house, its connection with him is erroneous. It is very similar to Jews House approximately 160m south. Listed. (4-5)
