It is of green oak frame construction, with traditional lime render and lime washed walls over a brick plinth in using, Hoskins’ ‘Old Farmhouse Blend’ bricks in Flemish bond and lime mortar.  The roof and north elevation at first floor are clad in new, handmade Kent peg tiles.  The single storey outshot with a lean to roof to the north contains the rear entrance porch, utility room and larder, is constructed in Lambs bricks, with a natural slate roof.
The oak frame features jetties to the front and one side, with a dragon beam at the corner and has two beautifully crafted crown posts above gusset braced tie beams within the master badroom.
