dressings; thatch roof with ashlar ridge stack. 3-unit plan. 2 storeys and one
storey plus attic. Front is divided by 2 early C19 ashlar buttresses with

moulded stone window with label. At first floor are two 3-light casements in the
centre bay and a 2-light casement to right, all with C19 chamfered stone
surrounds and labels. End wall of lower hipped-roofed left bay has two 2-light
stone-mullioned windows with labels, one in a dormer gable, plus a C19 chamfered
basket-arched doorway below a label with carved lozenge stops. Rear has a
