topped with C19 brick; slate roof. 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing
south-east with inner room at left (south-west) end. Projecting end stack to inner

lateral stack to service end room. Newel stair turret to rear of hall. Rear of
passage now blocked. 2 storeys. 4-window front, all late C19 horned large-pane
sashes with margin panes, and including tripartite sashes to hall and service room.
Hall window bay has been brought forward flush with the front of the stack. Late
C19 partly glazed front door is set inside the passage on the right of hall stack.
Roof is gable-ended and carried forward to front. Hall stack has apparently
