is of 3-unit plan with cross passage to right of central hall. 2
storeys; 4-window range. Canted C20 hood over mid C19
six-panelled (2 glazed) door. Flat rendered arches over early
C19 twelve-pane above 16-pane sashes, and 2 blind windows to
right. C17 stair turret with early C19 horizontal sliding sash
to left. C19 glazing-bar casement set in heavy pegged frame in
right gable end. C19 outshut and C20 porch to rear. Cross wing
projecting to front left has flat rendered arches over 2 late C19

landing staircase in cross passage; room to left (the central
firmer hall) has C17 chamfered beams, bressummer over open
fireplace and C17 doorway with ovolo-moulded architrave to mid

cross wing has C19 plank door, C17 chamfered beams and
stop-chamfered bressummer over open fireplace; roof not inspected
but principal rafters for A-frame trusses noted. The position of
the beams in the central hall suggests that the present C17
ceiling was inserted into a former open hall.
