The monument consists of a roofless ruin of a substantial stone building. The building forms a T shape in plan, with an east-west block measuring 15.25m x 7.4m, and a north-south block at the eastern end, measuring 11.2m x 6m. It has been interpreted as a residence, with a service and hall with central hearth, and a chamber to the east with a large southern window opening.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of settlement and domestic activity. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. A house may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
