C19 windows with segmental-pointed heads and a relieving arch at
the left gable end, similar windows at the south gable end over a
segmental-pointed entrance containing C20 glazed double doors.
East-facing elevation: three C20 three-light stone-mullioned
casements; two C20 four-light eaves dormers one of which is cut by
a double fire door. Double-width entrance with timber lintel
towards the left with four C20 top-opening steel casements. Flat
gable-end coping with roll-cross saddles; weathervane at the north
gable end.
Interior now contains first floor, and subdivided ground floor.
