This house is older than it appears from the outside. The right hand third of it contains a very attractive 16th century timber-framed house, end on to the road. This was re-fronted and extended on the south side during the 18th century, presenting now a pleasant double-fronted house with a central doorway, flanked by bow windows with an overhang above them. The first floor is tile hung, with a small, central and distinctive oriel window.

The main framework of the original Tudor house is still intact inside the later additions, and some of its timbers can be seen inside. The lower extension on the left of the house is 18th century, and was probably once the coach house.
