glazed inner front door with flanking glazed panels and a round-headed fanlight with
spoke glazing bars. The west elevation has late C18 or early C19 sash windows with
small panes and shutters, 2 ground floor canted bays are probably late C19 or C20
with high transomed French windows with glazing bars. At right angles to the west
elevation a probably Edwardian conservatory with a brick base and transomed lights
with round-headed arches and keyblocks.
Interior: Not thoroughly inspected but the principal rooms retain good mahogany
doors, cornices, Adam style fireplaces and a late C18/early C19 stair with turned
