has symmetrical 2-window front, Cl9 2-light horizontally sliding sashes with
glazing bars on ground floor and C20 2-light casements on first floor, all

small Cl9 fixed light window in west wall of east extension. C20 single
storey outshut at rear (north).

principal rafters exposed in the first floor rooms.
