House of C18 and C19. Red brick with Swithland slate roof and ridge and
end stacks. 2½ storeys of 3 horizontal sliding sash windows. Cambered
lintels. Central C19 stone doorcase with pilasters and cornice on consoles
and blocked round arched doorway further right with 1-light casement
within it. On left end a small canted bay and a 2-light casement with 1-light
casement over and in attic. Mid C19 walling, casements and doors to rear.
2 storey extension to right with rectangular French window bay and 8/8
sash window over. Inside are chamfered beams, inglenook, slate floor, and
