Three-light trefoil-headed painted stone windows to each floor, but 4-light on the N of the W range, facing the extensive view. Minimal bargeboards. Stone stack with battered top section, with yellow pots on the stack on the W gable. On the N side, a heraldic stone carving displaying the Hughes arms impaling Ravensworth, the Lewis arms omitted.
Not accessible at the time of inspection, March 1997.
Included as a good and well preserved example of an estate cottage, a precursor of the Victorian work at Kinmel showing the style first adopted.
