House, formerly known as Netherhouse, in single occupation. Late medieval timber-framed house encased in stone in late C17 or early C18. Thin coursed hammer-dressed stone, stone slate roof. 2 storeys. Single aisled hall with through passage and 3-room front. Outer bays have altered windows with large wooden lintels. Central bay preserves 16-light housebody window with chamfered wooden mullions and decorative leading to upper part with original coloured glass. 4-light fire window with wooden mullions. Left hand bay has 4-light flat faced mullioned window with 3-light window over C18. All ground floor windows have crude edged slate hoodmould with straight returns. Under eaves is curious string course made of diagonally set slates for pigeon columbarium this continues round right hand return wall which has extruded stack with batter and angle set chimney. 2 other stacks to ridge.

Interior: The timber-framed house survives only in fragments; the division wall between aisle and the main body of the house has 2 posts braced to tie beams with heavy curved braces. Board and muntin walling to ground floor with close- studded wall beneath the tie. The hall was open originally. The west wall is a framed wall of slight scantling and large panels with a central post rising to support the main spine beam, probably dating from the time of the insertion of a floor over the open hall. A timber bressumer spans the whole width of the room supported at its northern end by a chamfered heck post and has a brood chamfered stopped at both ends. There are good remains of the 1st hood in the roof space. 2 beams run east resting on the tie beam which carry a collar with mortices in its soffit for the framing of the hood. From the upper side of this collar stud rise at an angle to a second collar resting on the purlins. The hall window is light by wooden mullioned window which has Roman numerals to each mullion and preserves early glass in decorative leaded quarries in its upper lights. 4 Tudor arched timber-framed doorways survive some with original doors with ogee lintels. This timber mullioned and transomed window is a rare survival; the only other similar known in the Parish of Halifax is preserved on display in Bankfield Museum, Halifax, from the demolished White Hall, Ovenden; illustrated in E. Mercer, English Vernacular Houses, RCHM (1979), plate 4. D. Nortcliffe, Buildings of Brighouse, (Brighouse 1978), p. 23.
