1960 modernisation. Timber-framed, exposed frame on west side, weatherboarded
to east and south end is underbuilt with C20 brick and clad with peg-tile

still open to the roof. Rest is floored with a 2-room plan. Large front
(south) end sitting room has western lateral stack. Services and kitchen in

Exterior: Windows around the house are mostly small C20 casements with
glazing bars. Front gable end has central paired casements on each floor.
Large glazed panels to west and rear end to the open section. Western
midstrey -used as entrance porch but original front arch is blocked and present
entry has been knocked through the southern side. Roof is gable-ended to
front, hipped to rear with a gablet and midstrey roofs are hipped.

structure is apparently well-preserved. 5 bays with middle rails. Arch
