and gable ends; gable end stacks to the main range with cornices, to left with rubble

Plan: Originally a 2-room plan house, each room heated by a gable end stack; probably
later in the C19 a 2-storey porch was added, giving a front entrance directly into
the room to left. An addition of one-room plan, unheated, was made to the left end,
open fronted and open-sided at ground floor. Tudor Gothic style.

with raised coped verges and kneelers; at ground floor a 4-centred arched chamfered
granite doorway, with recessed spandrels with roundels and hood mould, at first floor
a 2-light chamfered granite casement with hood mould. The left side of the porch has
similar lower doorway. Inner granite doorway with depressed 4-centred arch, with
roll-mouldings and recessed spandrels; plain door. At ground floor, to right of the

arched convex-moulded doorway leading to the open area at ground floor, 2-light
chamfered granite casement with hood mould to right and granite string course over.
At the right end is a single storey lean-to and short range of single storey
outhouses. The left end forms the road front of the lodge; it is open at the ground
storey with moulded granite doorway with cast iron railings across, with trefoil
finials, string course over, and at first floor a 2-light chamfered granite casement
with hood mould. The rear of the single storey addition has a doorway and casement
as at the front. Inside the open-ended passage, there is a 3-light granite casement.
The rear of the main house has brick lean-to with hollow-chamfered 4-centred arched
doorway. Ground floor has canted bay with 3-light chamfered granite window, 2-light
