Central entrance with gabled porch, 1 C20 window on each side. Low brick extensions to both sides, that to the right probably of C18 origin. A heavy post is visible in the right hand return elevation. Rear has exposed brick of at least 2 phases resulting from successive rebuilding of the timber-frame, and 2 windows, one blocked.

2 rooms per floor, one with a heavy chamfered beam and wide fireplace with a simple staircase to left. Other beams and partitions are blocked in but the inner wall is said to be timber-framed. Timber framed gable end of house is visible in the attic of the C18 outbuilding.
