rendered brick end stacks with cloam oven projection on right.
2 room and probably cross passage plan with larger possibly hall kitchen on right and
parlour on left. Extended with rear outshut in circa early C19 and 1-room range set
back from left-hand gable end in mid C20.
2 storeys regular 3-window front. Ground floor with C20 2-light casement with
glazing bars on left and late C20 5-light bay window on right. Part glazed C20 door
near centre with late C20 stone rubble gabled porch.

C20 chimney pieces in both rooms. Complete circa early C17 ceiling of cross beams
and floor joists in hall kitchen. The chamfered cross beams have spade stops on the
rear and the stops on the front have probably been covered up or removed when the
bay window was added in the late C20. Unmoulded floor joists at right angles.
Parlour with one circa early C17 cross beam with spade stops and mortices for floor
joists. The remaining unmoulded cross beams are heavy and closely set with much
slighter circa C19 beams towards the passage. Roof timbers not accessible at time of
inspection. The straight feet of the principals visible from the first floor, appear
fairly slight with chamfer and indicate a possibly mid C18 roof structure.
