The farmhouse comprised two long rooms (1, 2; Fig. 3) whose walls (width 0.8 m) were partly founded on a sloping perforated bedrock terrace and partly on top of leveled soil fill that also served as their floors. A refuse pit was discovered north of the building.
Room 1 (4.4 × 6.0 m) had survived by their northern (W2) and eastern (W1) walls. At the northern end of W1 was an opening (width 0.9 m) with a threshold that led to Room 2. Two stones that apparently served as the base of a pilaster for an arch were discovered in the middle of W1, on its western side. The other room’s walls did not survive, but their outline could be discerned at the end of the bedrock terrace on the southern (W3) and western sides.
Room 2 (2.6 × 6.0 m) was survived by three of its walls (W1, W2, W4); the fourth was most likely located at the end of the bedrock terrace. A rectangular base built of large stones, which probably served as the foundation for a staircase, was discovered at the northern end of the room, abutting W2. The meager remains of a flagstone pavement on top of tamped soil fill, which was incorporated in the bedrock floor, were discovered near W1 in the center of the room.
The pottery vessels on the floor of Room 1 (L108) included jar fragments (Fig. 6:14, 18); on the floor of Room 2 (Loci 107, 125, 126) were fragments of bowls (Fig. 6:3, 6), kraters (Fig. 6:7), a cooking pot (Fig. 6:10, 12) and jars (Fig 6:16, 17, 19), all dating to the sixth–seventh centuries CE.
The staircase,to the south of Room 1, consisted of six steps, some bedrock-hewn and others built. It rested against a wall (W6; Fig. 4) along its southern side and led from the bedrock surface to the opening of a shaft (0.9 × 3.0 m, depth 2.07 m), which was blocked by a rectangular stone; a recess in its southern side was most likely meant for a rolling stone. The staircase apparently led to a burial cave that was not excavated. A fragment of a krater (Fig. 6:8) from the sixth–seventh centuries CE was recovered from the fill in the staircase.
