higher end room is heated by a projecting rear lateral stack.

casements probably in original openings which might have originally contained sashes.

door. String above ground floor. First floor with 5 similar windows. Left-hand

early C19 10 over 15-pane sashes with timber lintels. First floor with 2 early C19

respectbut symmetrical and up to date in elevation.
