WALLED GARDEN: rectangular garden on sloping site adjacent to principal (E) elevation, enclosed by substantial random rubble walls.

Statement of Interest

The piend-roofed form is unusually sophisticated for a rural house of this size. A late 19th century photograph taken before the addition of the porch shows that the house had a symmetrical arrangement of two entrance doors flanking a 12-pane timber sash and case window. The doors are shown as having rectangular fanlights with a decorative astragal pattern.
