This late 16th century, Grade II listed, yeoman farmer’s house comprises a former hall and two cross wings.  During the 19th century, the hall range was modified to increase the first floor height and in the 1960s, a large lean-to extension was constructed on its north side.

An extensive scheme of timber frame repairs was carried out and incorporated an ingenious insulated, brick faced infill panel detail in order to maintain the 19th century brick infill panel appearance required by the Local Planning Authority.

At that time, the west cross-wing was used as a separate dwelling but during 2011, the interior of the house was completely re-organised to incorporate the west cross-wing into the main house and to relocate the kitchen and cloakroom from the lean-to into the east cross wing.  The lean-to is now a grand entrance hall that complements and restores the previously concealed and decayed north wall of the hall.
