Asymmetrical fenestration at the back with C20 casements and large lateral
stack to left.

moulding, and chamfered joists with hollow step stops; the fireplace at the
left hand end has chamfered wooden lintel with notched stops. The right
hand room has closely spaced ceiling joists and there is no main beam; the
lateral fireplace at the back of the room has what appears to be a stop
chamfered heavily cambered timber lintel and an oven in the rear left hand
