East gable faces road, with a ground floor window having plain reveals, a 3-light rebated and chamfered mullioned window on the 1st floor, and a similar 2-light window to the attic. Also lighting the attic is a horizontal sliding sash with glazing bars and plain reveals. West gable has a 1-light chamfered window on the ground floor, a window with plain reveals to the 1st floor and 2 2-light rebated and chamfered attic windows. High up under the eaves is a blocked ?-light chamfered window. North wall retains its rebated and chamfered mullioned windows, with one of 2 light to the left, one of 3 lights to the right and a later window with plain reveals between, with a coal hole to the cellar having chamfered sides.
