window range of sashes and casements to first floor, ground floor
ovolo-moulded 2-light each side, door in C20 moulded surround,

inserted mullion. Ground floor north room has heavy beamed ceiling
with chamfers and stops. First floor north room has C18 moulded
stone fireplace with C19 grate. Six-bay roof to main range, collar
trusses, the north truss possibly C17 or earlier. The house was
