Rural property of 17th/18th century origins, retaining historic character and some original features, including corbelled fireplaces. Property comprises two ranges - the west range is apparently 17th century or earlier, developed into a two-storey dwelling and re-faced on the east entrance elevation; the east range is probably of 18th century origin, still single storey.
Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795. Detached house comprising 2 ranges at right angles, western one which may have originated as a single storey cottage later developed into a 2 storey dwelling, with 18th century wing to east. Modern extensions to north.
