flush frame hung sashes of twelve panes each in segmental arches
with open boxing. Three windows at ground floor including two
tripartite hung sashes c.1930, and an original hung sash window

flat hood. Above the front door is a brick inscribed 1723.
Right hand gable end has red brick diaper work and a blocked
1723 window opening. The kitchen wing has some earlier

front and rear doorways and an early C19 staircase screen with
similar detail to the doorcase. The open-well staircase is 1723
and of two flights and a landing. Urn shaped balusters with

There is no evidence for hearths in the gable ends at either

abutting hearth to the kitchen, restored. The roof is of
staggered butt-purlin construction. The house is probably on
