Raised and coped W gable on ogee moulded kneelers and a brick stack, and two blocked windows to each floor. Rear wing also has coped gable. Attic window in E gable. Stock yard to rear.
Ground floor divided into 3 independent bays by brick partitions, but timber partition divides E unit, which has the upper floor cut-away in form of an octagon, perhaps for later grain dryer.
