timbers, exposed, at rear but rendered at front; the left wing of
painted stone is probably C18 with no visible features. Gabled
central oak-framed porch, originally open but with recently fitted
outer door. Ridge chimney opposite porch and left gable chimney of
brick. Some frame members are cut out to receive C19 vernacular

The Interior has massive chamfered oak beams (one with pegholes
suggesting former baffle-post to lobby entry, with altered inglenook

tongue-stopped chamfered oak beam. Internal oak framing is visible in
central portion and cross-wing. Two plain enclosed stairs.
