Left-hand room heated by an axial stack (the shaft now dismantled), and the right-hand room by an internal end stack. 2 storeys.

3-light casement window to either side of doorway, with tiled porch and half-glazed door. No. 10 (which comprises most of the former farmhouse, to the right of the now partly dismantled axial stack) with two 3-light C19 casement windows to first floor; 2 irregularly placed ground floor windows, both of 3 lights, to either side of planked doorway the porch similar to no. 9.
