House. Early to late C19, datestone in gable with initials S. H.
above Multum in Parvo, above 1808. Ashlar facing to gable and
right return, rest is rubblestone. Stone slate roof with coped
verges, kneelers and finial. Ashlar axial stacks. Entrance in
gable facing street. L-plan with later C19 wing to left. 2
storeys, 1 window. Rusticated ground floor with plat band and
wrought iron canopy, C20 door in moulded architrave to left and 12-
pane sash to right. 12 pane sash to first floor and string course
at eaves level. Small attic casement in gable above, with
datestone over. Right return has C20 French windows and two 12 -
pane sashes, plat band and cornice below parapet. Later C19 wing
to left is 2 storeys with 4-pane sashes and has blocked door to
left gable. C19 outshut to rear.
Interior has been altered and contains no contemporary features,
but it seems that the later C19 wing is for services and contains
back stairs. The ashlar front and return is probably the casing
of a slightly earlier house, of which no internal features survive.
