string at first floor level. To the right a front projecting wing is gabled to the
front with a stone porch with a steep lean-to roof in the right angle between the
south block and the wing. Deep plinth and deep eaves carried out on moulded stone
brackets to the front gables. The ground floor window left, 3 stepped lights with a
chamfered stone architrave has been converted to a French window when a C20

arched doorway with polychromatic banding round the head of the arch and a slit

the wing is a 3-light canted bay with 4-pane sashes and a stone architrave. Above
the bay window is a pair of pointed arched sashes with Gothick glazing bars with
polychromatic banding round the heads of the arches, a chamfered granite sill and a
stopped chamfered common jamb. A trefoil ventilator is in the gable. The south
elevation of the house is more regular with 3-bays of 12-pane sashes with granite
Interior Contemporary internal features survive including 2 chamfered arched stone
