Department of Environment, 1986, South Brent, 46 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV178295.

House, formerly a farmhouse, and adjoining outbuilding. Probably 17th century, largely rebuilt in circa early-19th century. Granite rubble. Asbestos slate roof with hipped higher end, gabled lower end with welsh slates. Formerly probably slate hung at front, remains of slate hanging in panels below first floor windows. Rendered lateral stack rising from rear wall. Former end stack at ridge at higher end.
Probably originally a three room and through passage plan with internal rear lateral hall stack and later end stack heating inner room. But plan much altered in early 19th century including the entire rebuilding of the lower end and extensive rebuilding and heightening of higher end, insertion of a doorway into front of inner room and the addition of an outbuilding with loft above at higher end. Two storeys. Regular five window range. 19th century three-light casement with glazing bars and flat stone arches. Left hand first floor window originally loft loading door, the doorway below has slate canopy on large granite cantilevered corbels. The main front doorway to left of centre with slate canopy. Right hand end doorway into lower room. All doorways have 20th century doors. Right hand lower end doorway into shippon and external stone stairs to loft loading door above. Rear wall has little fenestration but has narrow window to side of lateral stack which was probably originally a stair window.
Interior not fully inspected. Rear lateral stack in former hall has lintel roughly chamfered with run-out stops and surprisingly of timber and not granite. Small higher end fireplace with rough unchamfered granite lintel suggests this stack is later insertion and that inner room was probably unheated originally. Present front doorway enters lobby in higher end room. Position of stairs uncertain. Early 19th century panelled window shutters to front ground floor windows.
