Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

17th century rural house with outbuilding, retains some exterior features, notably evidence of early origin particularly window surrounds. Some notable interior features, particularly two fireplaces in north wall and door and window surrounds. Letter of 1659 found in bottle in chimney. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Detached farmhouse and detached outbuilding to east, possibly originating as wash/bakehouse. Two-storey four-bay house with attic. Northern bay may be addition to southern three bays, but still of considerable age.

Modern extensions to north and west.

Roughly dressed granite quoins, those to south including long horizontals, doorway in second bay from south, perhaps originally the central bay of a three-bay composition. Original sills lost when opening lowered to accommodate sash windows in 18th or 19th century.

Outbuilding along roadside to east, single storey, three-bay, lean-to modern extension to south, pitched slate roof, brick chimney at north end.

Recently renovated, some notable original features survive. Kitchen to right, large fireplace on north wall, timber lintel, bread ovens and other recesses, large lintel in left wall, small square opening (former window?) in west wall with granite surrounds; former external doorway in west wall now leads to new rear extension.

Outbuilding converted to residential use, no surviving features except position of fireplace at north end. The house displays Jersey’s vernacular tradition in the use of local materials and details.
