House. Late C16 - early C17. Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stack with plastered brick chimney shaft; slate roof (formerly thatch).
Plan: 2-room plan cottage facing south-west. It is parallel to but set back from the street. It is a conversion of part of a 3-room-and-through-passage plan hall house. The inner room, at the left end, is now the entrance lobby. The hall, now the sitting room contains the C20 staircase, and has an axial stack backing onto the site of the former passage, now a small room. The service end crosswing has been divided off and is now Orchard Cottage (q.v). 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 3-window front includes one C19 casement with glazing bars, the rest replaced with PVC casements circa 1980. Present front door near the left end contains a C20 door and contemporary shingle-roofed porch. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior. The basic fabric, as far as can be seen, is late C16 - early C17. The partition between the hall and entrance lobby (former inner room) is an oak plank- and-muntin screen; the muntins chamfered with straight cut stops. Hall has a soffit-chamfered and straight cut stopped axial beam. The fireplace is blocked by a C20 grate. Roof of clean uncollared true cruck trusses. The front garden is enclosed by a late C19 granite rubble wall with ashlar coping surmounted by cast iron spear railings. A granite ashlar corner post has a pyramid cap.
