Ground floor has 9-pane sash each side of 4-panel door, all with timber lintels, door and right window aligned with those above, left window set further right than one above. Another window to ground floor further left, presumably to light a fireplace stair, of similar size to sashes and with timber lintel. Rubble stone roofless lean-to on right end wall.
Lofted outbuilding to left has lower roofline and eaves, slate roof, wall-face apparently continuous with that of house. Originally five doors with timber lintels and square loft openings over second and fourth doors. Other 3 doors now part blocked as windows.
