A C16-C17 timber-framed and plastered building, formerly 2 houses. Considerably restored. Two storeys. The north block has a jettied upper storey on a moulded bressumer. Four window range of casements with leaded lights. The ground storey has large modern mullioned and transomed windows. At the north end there is a carriage way. Roof tiled, with various eaves and ridge levels. The south block has a 17th centruy chimney stack with 4 diagonal shafts, the outer shafts hexagonal. The interior has exposed beams and open fireplaces (S1).
