projects. The 2 left-hand windows are later C19 4 pane sashes, above the ground

the original granite 4-centred chamfered granite doorway with C20 plank door. This

granite framed light. At left-hand end is single storey C19 wash-house. Later C19

a C20 fireplace inserted into it but has not been removed.
Despite later additions the interesting original plan of the C17 house survives with
a number of its features preserved.
