central entrance passage with a staircase at the back; each room is heated
from a gable end stack, the large left hand room was probably originally
the kitchen with a lower floor level. The single storey wing behind the
right hand room maybe integral and probably originally unheated; it now has
a lateral stack on the outer right side. The outshut at the rear of the

In the mid to late C20 the space between the outshut and rear wing was
infilled with a single storey addition.

outshut. The space between the rear wing and outshut has been filled with
a mid to late C20 single storey flat-roof addition.

rooms have blocked fireplaces, the left hand room has exposed rough joists
and the right hand room has a roughly chamfered cross-beam. The wider
staircase at the back of the passage is C20.
