The description should be amended to read:-

C20 extension of several builds principally 1986-7. Timber frame with
replacement brick infill, some plastered panels, and brick
underbuilding; extension of painted brick. Thatched roofs, half-hipped
at right end. Rebuilt brick chimney at left end of older section. One
storey, 2 bays, the left bay originally containing timber-framed
wattle-and-daub chimney stack and probably unceiled, the right bay with
attic floor. Extension on left of 2 storeys, 2 bays. Older section has
square-panelled timber frame with straight braces up to wall plate;
rafter ends visible. Entrance is at left end, having board door in
open pent porch; to its right a 2-light leaded casement with 2-light
dormer above. Right-hand bay has 2 small windows, with glazing bars in
place of former 6-light mullioned window. Right gable end has two small
C19/early C20 bay windows, that on left in place of former mullioned
window; and a C19 3-light window above. The extension has small-paned
windows, those on 1st floor wing above eaves; large lean-to porch at
rear. INTERIOR: older section has late C17/earlyC19 brick inglenook
fireplace, much reworked C20, and above it, in attic, framework survives
from the former timber chimneystack; the attic floor of this bay appears
to have been inserted at the same date as the inglenook, the spine-beam
having chamfer and cyma stops at one end only and the joists
unchamfered. The original window openings have shutter rebates in their
heads and mortices from former mullions; one diamond-set mullion
survives in the front window. Timber-framed partition wall between
bays. Roof retains original purlins, wind-braces and rafters.
