Timber-framed and formerly jettied; fronted in painted brick;
C20 pantiles.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, attics and cellars. 3 window range:
16-pane sashes in plain reveals. The ground storey windows are

extends at the rear.
INTERIOR: front range in 2 bays with a central cross entry bay
between them. To left and right of the entry the main beams

A chimney-stack on the rear wall has a plain lintel and a
