LinkExternal link describes the building as: "a two storied building which has two chambers on the ground level. The walls are regularly coursed, clay bonded and rendered. Some structural timbers lie in situ. Overall, it measures 5m by 9m and the walls stand up to 6m high at the gable ends. One chamber has a large doorway (1.75m wide) in the side wall on the ground floor and a second door in the gable end on the upper floor. There is a hearth on the ground floor against the end wall and a window in the side wall. Two doorways formerly connected the two ground floor chambers; these have been blocked up. The second chamber has two windows and a door in the end wall. It appears to have served as a store."
