mid C19. Front of stucco on cob with rubble footings with whitewashed brick on
rubble footings to rear; stone and brick stacks; concrete tile roof (thatched

4-window front framed by slightly projecting flat-faced plinth, end pilasters and
strips and eaves cornice. 6-panel front door with overlight, panelled reveals and
flat-roofed Tuscan porch of 2 granite columns on block bases with responds and
wooden entablature. Flanking late C19 flat-roofed canted bay windows with moulded
entablature, 4-pane forward sash with horns, narrow side lights, granite sills and
panelled base. Left bay has C20 door intruded to front. Other windows are 16-pane
sashes without horns. Projecting eaves on pairs of shaped brackets and roof hipped
each side. Rear wing has 16-pane sashes to first floor and casements below with

includes some C18 or C19 timber casements with small panes. Interior has mostly
C19 fittings but large volcanic stone fireplace exposed to rear of centre room

House seems to have adapted C16 or C17 3-room-and-through-passage plan and
contemporary features are probably hidden. Roof not inspected.
