House, at one time divided into 2 cottages. Probably late C17 or early C18; the north-east end possibly a later addition. Granite rubble. Thatched roof with small gablets projecting front and back at the north-east end. 2 plain thick stone chimneystacks on the ridge, one on south-west gable and the other, which is of ashlar, towards the north-east end. A third, smaller stone stack, probably early or mid C19, on north-east gable. 3-room plan; the original house may have consisted only of the 2 south-west rooms, making a roughly symmetrical house with end chimneys. South-west room seems to have belonged to a separate cottage at one time. 2 storeys. 3 windows wide; C20 metal casements on ground storey, C19 wood casements with glazing-bars above. The left-hand window is set in a slight projection, matched by a similar feature at the rear. At right-hand end is a doorway with old plank door, bead-moulded frame and cast iron knocker; open-fronted stone porch with wooden pent roof. To left of it is a blocked opening, possibly a former doorway. Left-hand doorway has chamfered, shouldered-head wood frame with scroll-stops; although clearly of some age, and with pegged joints, the crisp outline of this feature suggests that it may not be medieval or even C16. In front of it is a C20 glazed stone porch. Interior has few features. In ground storey the south-west gable-fireplace has a heavy granite lintel, chamfered with run-out stops. Fireplace in middle room, possibly in the original gable-end, has a similar granite lintel, but without the chamfer. Upper floor is carried on plain joists running from front to back. Roof has plain trusses with feet resting on the wall-tops; collars pegged to faces of principal rafters.
