C20 window and larger window opening with circa early C19 12-pane 2-light horizontal-
sliding sash with crown glass to first floor left. (Opening possibly enlarged at

Right-hand gable end has 2 pointed arched openings to ground floor left and right and
smaller one to first floor right, probably inserted circa 1830's, now with C20 window
copies with intersecting tracery to ground floor.
Rear has ground and first floor window left of outshut possibly cut or enlarged circa

Interior largely unaltered since the early C18; large fireplace with chamfered, and

Some superficial C20 alteration but retaining much from the C18 and possibly earlier.
Particularly notable are the stair window, the stair, and the 2-panel doors.
