gable end stacks and a lateral stack on front wall. Two storeys, four windows:
2-light casements, with lateral stack between two to left; ground floor: to
left-hand side: a boxed 6-pane sash with entrance to right which has a ledged
and boarded door; to right-hand side a tiled pentice roof over two square bay
windows with entrance between which has a wooden architrave and a half-glazed
door; to right hand corner a garage with two-leaf door; to left-hand end the
late C18 brick addition which is of,one storey with a dentilled brick cornice
and a 2-light casement. Framing: originally two rectangular panels high;
gable truss (to left) has two raking struts to collar and a clasped purlin.
