Rubble with freestone quoins and dressings; C20 tiled roofs and ashlar stacks
with caps. 2 storeys and attics in steep stone gables. South elevation. Irregu-
lar U-plan of 2:2:1 bays; the centre 2 are recessed; 3- and 4-light cross windows
on ground floor and casements above, in hollow chamfered mullions and surrounds;
continuous dripmoulds over ground and first floors, individual dripmoulds to attic
windows. C20 ashlar porch with 4-centre headed doorway at south-east (right)
corner; 3-light corner window above under dripmould with lozenge stops. Early
C20 single storey and 2-bay extension at right, 3- and 4-light cross windows.
The east gable end has a 2-light, cusped window in the attic. The Rear or North

headed doorway, with date 1555 incised into the lintel (modern lettering); quatre-
foil light in a lateral stack with off-sets; buttress and adjoining canted stair-

freestone fireplaces in moulded surrounds and under flat and 4-centred heads;
