former stable (now part of house): large sash window with margin-dressed lintel
and tall gable stack.
Interior: 1st cell (the housebody) has stop-chamfered spine beam of large scantling

existence of a bressumer and firehood giving a lobby-entrance plan. The 2nd cell
(parlour) has chamfered spine beam and floor joists with ogee stops. Fireplace
has basket arch carried on cyma moulded corbels and stop-chamfered surround.
