Two storeys and attics: three windows to front, one to rear. Mainly C20 casement windows with leaded lights. North front has end bays with midrails and massive curved tension braces and central bay and part above tie beam level of C18 thinner scantling. East end has similar curved braces visible above later leanto extension. South front has exposed timberframe to first floor, including curved braces to right and diagonal braces to left. Two flat-roofed dormers with leaded lights. First floor has early C20 casements and ground floor later C20 casements and the entrance is now through a C20 weatherboarded porch to south west attached to a later leanto which obscures the timberframing to the west side.
INTERIOR: C16 wallframe visible including jowled posts and close-studding. Ground floor has C18 ceiling beams and two central brick fireplaces with wooden bressumers. Two half-winder staircases and plank doors. Although the roof was not accessible, because the walls were heightened it is likely to have been replaced in the C18.
