additional doorway to W elevation. Full-height canted bay

Variety of glazing patterns, including diamond-pane porch
lights to earlier house. Small-pane sash and case windows

stacks to S range, paired at E gable; gable end and wallhead
stacks to N wing. Decorative ironwork brackets to S elevation.
GATEPIERS AND PARAPET: square ashlar pyramid capped gatepiers,

Allegedly the 19th century work was prompted out of
rivalry between the Thurston and Biel estates at opposite
ends of the village, Innerwick House belonging to the
latter estate. The earlier house with steep gable pitch
and 5-bay S elevation, would have been more imposing before
the detrimental 19th century work.
