plain-tile roof with brick gable stacks. L-plan. 2 storeys plus attics. 4-window

returning over the rear wing with a roof dormer facing left. Left side has a
4-window range of similar renewed cross windows including a stair window; all
have C20 lattice glazing. Rear gable has a stone parapet, paired brick stacks,

Interior: large open fireplace with bread oven, partly rebuilt: heavy
stop-chamfered beams; upper flight of C17 dogleg stair with heavy turned
balusters; first-floor fireplace with curved interior, herringbone-brick reredos
and brick flat arch; butt-purl in roof with jointed rafters. Probably built as a
