and small galleting pieces. Graduated greenslate roofs with rendered chimney
stacks. 2 storeys, 3 bays, formerly U-shaped but centre now filled; lower bank
barn to right, of 11 bays with byres underneath. House has 2 C20 doors in plain
openings. Sash windows with glazing bars in plain reveals. Side top-glazed
door within gabled porch. Barn has excavated passage at front, the 2 cart
doorways, flanking a pent extension, reached by slab bridges over the passage.
