return gable at left-hand end, half-hipped ends, two stacks. 1½ storeys,
1+3-windowed, 2-light wood casements with bars, one 3-light at ground floor in gable;
thatch raised over two dormers. Large plank door, right, also second entrance in
facade to road, and modern entrance and outbuilding on north side. Interior:
