Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

A fine example of a late 19th century farm range, with nearby rare 16th century arch. Two-storey, seven-bay combination outbuilding range.

Elliptical arched carriage entrance. Farmhouse substantially rebuilt 20th century. Also of interest is archway in roadside wall - an 11-piece depressed arch in pink granite circa 1550.

The house interior was renovated in recent times, as a consequence the only original features visible are two stone fireplaces. The one in the ground floor west room is a recently reconstructed 18th century example, and that in the east room is a reconstructed 19th century type. The original timber A-frame roof survives intact.

Old Jersey Houses

There is no mention of this property, despite the existence of the roadside arch
