Plan: L plan. Very altered in the 20th century but the wing is probably the kitchen wing, entrance in the angle between the wing and main range.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 1 window front elevation plus 2 windows to the inner return of the wing; thatched 20th century porch in the angle. 20th century 3-light casements, the ground floor windows transomed with square leaded panes. First floor windows without transoms but also with square leaded panes. 2 ground floor and 1 first window to the gable end of the wing - a photograph in the possession of the owner shows that these 3 windows are 20th century introductions.
Interior: Modernized, re-using some 17th century carpentry.
On the outskirts of an exceptional village of traditional thatched houses.
