Several windows have hinged slats to support upper sashes.

door C20, 6 panels, and included semicircular fan light,
window, C20 replaced frame and sashes to basic design. First
floor N-S, 4 identical windows. Attic, 3 hipped dormers set
between the windows below with C20 casement windows of 2
lights, 4x2 panes. S elevation pebble dash rendered, roof
hipped to E, simple gable with stack to W, C18 single-storey
continuation to W and further C19 and C20 single storey blocks
attached. Ground floor E-W, C20 3-light casement window, C20
porch of timber and brick, peg-tiled gable with waney edge
boarding and side lights with glazing bars, 4x3 panes, door of
2 leaves, each glazed, 2x3 panes. In C18 addition sash window
with glazing bars, 4x4 panes. First floor, C18 sash window
with glazing bars, 4x4 panes. Attic hipped dormer with 2-light
C20 casement window. N side elevation pebble dash rendered,
hipped roof, 2 window range C18 sashes as front, lower pair
have small cyma moulded hoods. Rear W elevation wings with
central out-shut. N wing roof hipped to N, simple S facing
gable to S at first floor. C20 2-light casement with transom.
C20 flat roofed dormer projects from out-shut roof with
2-light metal casement window with transom. No other windows
except in C18 addition, sash with glazing bars, 3x3 panes.
INTERIOR: considerably re-worked in earlier C20. Rear out-shut
converted to through corridor leading to doorway on S
elevation. Extensive contemporary panelling on ground floor.
Room divisions removed and fireplaces rebuilt. S 2 bayed wing
has central posts and tie-beam with lamb's tongue chamfer
stops on first floor. Attics have butt side purlin
construction in main range and S wing. Also small C17 bricks
of stack evident at this level. Irregularity of attic floor
framing suggests that stair originally rose directly behind
the stack. The house of early C17, 3-celled origin with S wing
and rear out-shut probably contemporary. The shape of the roof
of N wing suggests that later alteration was intended to
create a 2 storey, double depth house with hipped roofs all
round, only part of which was completed. Instead, various
single storey additions were constructed on the S wing.
