chimneys to the C18 part. T-shaped plan: 2-bay C17 house on north-south axis,
with 2-bay C18 extension at right angles'on the east side. All 2 storeys
(older part possibly raised): south gable wall has a 5-light double-chamfered
stone mullion window with hoodmould (lacking 2 mullions), side wall has a
similar 3-light window at this end, remains of another in the left bay, and
north gable wall has a similar 3-light window on each floor (this part damaged
and partly concealed from outside); other openings of this element of less
interest. Addition to east has on its south side a single-storey gabled porch
