stack over front wall.

kitchen to the left and what was probably the dairy to the right. There is

widened by moving the partition on the left-hand side.
Exterior: 2 storeys and cellar. Asymmetrical 3-window with front. C19

sashes, all in openings with flat stone arches. Doorway to right of centre

on wooden posts. On left-hand side the cellar doorway has a plank door and
to its left at higher level a late C20 conservatory.
Rear elevation has 16-pane sashes, some restored and large C20 central stair
window with C20 porch below.

joinery has been replaced but the original open well staircase survives with
stick balusters and turned newels.
