front corner. Rear wall has the remains of a curved stair projection. The
steep-pitched roof is raised at the front, and has a large rubble stack to right
of bay one. Interior: Rain room has stop-chamfered joists spanning onto heavy
intersecting stop-chamfered beads and perimeter beams, forming 5 sections around
a massive chimney breast, with an open fireplace below a stop-chamfered
bressumer. Stop-chamfered crass beam in garage has mortices for joists having
soffit tenons with splayed abutments. Depressed-arched chamber fireplace has

battered internally. Masonry courses through with No.37 (Lilac Cottage) to left
