rubble with granite dressings. Grouted scantle slate roof with dressed granite
chimney over left-hand gable end; brick chimneys over the other gable end and over
the party wall.

fish cellars and net-basking cellars with loft, on the right. Eaves of both parts
were heightened probably circa early C19.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Overall 6-window south-west front. Original 2-window front
