North gable has projecting chimney-stack of granite ashlar with chamfered plinth,
offsets and moulded tapered top; short added brick shaft on top. Brick chimney-
shaft on south gable. L-shaped plan with rounded rubble stair turret to rear of
main range. 2-storeyed with rear wing of 1 1/2 storeys. 3-window front. All windows with wooden casements; late C19 or early C20 of 2 panes, except for right-hand window of each storey, which is C20 with leaded lights. Doorway, off-centre to right, has late C16 or C17 ovolo-moulded wood frame with cranked head. C20 porch with thatched roof supported by wooden posts. To left of it in ground storey and 2-light casement, and then, at a slightly higher level, a 4-light casement, the opening having a moulded wood frame and drip-mould, the latter with its right-hand terminal missing. Above it, in second storey, a 3-light casement, and over the doorway a 2-light casement. The level of the windows steps down successively.

possibly concealed under plaster.
