facing east, with continuous addition to rear; peat-house and
barn attached to south end.

benches, protects a Tudor-arched inner doorway with a
double-layered plank door; to the left is a small square
4-pane sashed window, to the right a large square 3-light
window (early C20), and at 1st floor above these are 2 square
16-pane hornless sashes; and there are 2 smaller blocked
windows at 1st floor, one offset right above the porch and the
other to the right of the 2nd window, both with wooden
lintels. Offset left above the porch is a square recess as if
for a datestone. Ridge chimney at junction to left, gable
chimney to right. C19 addition to rear. Peat-house continues
to left, and small barn is attached to this.
INTERIOR: stone lateral partition wall to left of doorway, and
built into this a carved court cupboard with initials "I F" (=

housepart on right, which has 2 roughly-chamfered lateral
