Small house. Probably C18 or earlier origins. Flemish bond brick with blue
headers to the ground floor, first floor tile-hung; peg-tile roof; brick

Plan: Sited on a spur of high ground at the top of Windmill Hill, facing on
to the hill. Probably 2 rooms wide with a front door to left of centre. The
main range is single depth with a rear right outshut which projects beyond the
right end of the house.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front. Gable-ended roof, left
end stack and axial stack. C18 fielded panel front door to left of centre. 3
ground floor late C19 plate glass sashes, 2-panes with margin glazing. 3
first floor 2-light casements, each just breaking the eaves line with one
light above. The right (north) end of the house has a 2-tier bay glazed with
late C19 or C20 windows with glazing bars with a French window in the centre
of the bay on the ground floor.

Interior: Not inspected.

Although modest in scale and external detail the house occupies an important
corner site at the entrance to the village from the north.
