on square base to rear. Single-storey extension beyond, now a double garage. 2
storeys with attics. Halved boarded door and half-glazed door, one C18
casement window, 3 reproduction windows in original arched apertures. Double
boarded doors over wheel-race. First floor has C20 central french windows and
balcony. 2 C18 casement windows and 2 C20 casement windows in original arched
apertures. String course at first-floor level, dentils under eaves, gambrel
roof. Boldly projecting lucom with 2 C18 casement windows in it, and 2 swept

Interior has exposed beams and joists on both floor, mostly original. Most of
the windows, back and front, are original, with hardwood frames, wrought iron

repaired or restored in C20). Individually these are becoming rare, and a
substantial set of them in their original context is particularly valuable.
