2½ storeys with small rectangular casement in worn stone surround in gable,
over a 2-light casement with bars and in extreme outer corner a pointed cusped
light with square head and drip, all badly worn over two C20 casements at ground
floor and a central wide plank deep set door in 4-centre opening formed from
two large stones as lintol. To left, slightly set forward, a two storey 2-windowed
wing with 2-light C19 casements with horizontal bars and wood lintols and stone
cills, central 4-panel moulded door to C20 porch. Return front, to main road,

Interior: original block much modified, has walls c700mm thick, and some wattle
and daub partitioning in the open gable to the return block, and an open bressummer
fire with large square stone lintol over carved and moulded stone cheeks; the
return block includes a right spiral stone stair in cylindrical well and stone
paved passage from C16 doorway. A stone doorway gives from internal staircase
to the upper level of the original building. A complex historical growth,
externally still of significance; dates of 1360 and 1514 for the original block
and later wing have been suggested by the occupant.
