of 3 rooms with lobby entry extended to 4 with later additions to stem

range of casements in canted bays; plank door to right in line with

later lean-to addition to rear. Interior: reported to have large open
fireplace at north-west end with probably original winder staircase in
east corner. 2 rooms to centre of main range also reported to
