Symmetrical main facade with central entrance and exposed timber lintel; pegged doorcase and C19 2-panel (vertical) door with later glazed cut-outs to the top. C18 12-pane slightly-recessed and unhorned sash windows to ground and first floors with moulded frames and segmentally-arched heads; rough-dressed voussoirs. 4-pane C19 casements to the upper floor, under the eaves. The lower section to the R has multi-pane tripartite windows to both floors and, set back to the R, a deeply-recessed boarded door to the rear section. Low C19 outshut to the rear with long catslide roof; 4- and 12-pane C19 sliding sashes, with small-pane and plain glazed modern windows.
