2 bays to each elevation; single window on each floor to front face of each bay; 12-pane sash windows in re-used
ovolo-moulded stone architraves, 6-pane sash windows to second floor in similar surrounds, the window to each bay blank
and painted as false windows, continuous weathered strings rising into hood moulds on ground and first floors; large
irregularly placed stairlight to rear with a semi circular head, 22-pane sash window. Central door opening to west
elevation, paired 2-panelled doors, gabled hood on consoles. Interior virtually completely re-fitted late C18,
including doors and windows shutters, but 2 early fireplaces in stone surrounds with 4-centred heads, elaborate
moulding; similar fireplace to second floor, further fireplaces probably remain to be uncovered. (Pevsner N, Buildings
