gables with deep kneelers to the principal range, 2 gable and 1
axial ridge stacks. L-plan, lobby entry. 2 storey plus garrets
8 bay front, with plinth, dentillated first floor band and
corbelled out eaves course. Off-centre half glazed C20 door with
overlight having moulded brick surround with collared pilasters
and pediment, in which is set a rectangular brick datestone
"1695". The first floor band rises over the doorcase. To either
side of the door are pairs of glazing bar sashes. Beyond to the
right is a second door, C20 glazed, with a flat arched head,
contained in a moulded brick surround, pilasters and entablature.
Beyond again is a further pair of sashes. All ground floor
windows have flat brick arched heads. To first floor are 6
sashes arranged in pairs, with over the principal door 2 smaller
sashes. To left of front is a 2 bay advanced and gabled block
with plinth and band. To first floor only are 2 sashes. The
first floor band and decorative eaves course continue across the
road elevation which has 3 sashes to ground floor, 2 to first
floor and one small surviving garret window of the original pair.
The rear elevation has a plain first floor band, and a double
dentillated eaves course and 6 sashes to first floor. Interior.
The original plan probably consisted of a parlour to the road
with added stair bay to the garden front: beyond were a hall,
kitchen and sunken floored dairy in echelon. In the parlour may
be seen chamfered girders and floor joists. Between the hall and
kitchen is a massive H-plan stack: the kitchen joists are not
moulded, otherwise all girders have delicate shield shaped stops.
To first floor are moulded girders and joists to the parlour and
hall chambers only. The roof is a clasped purlin with collars,
pegged at the ridge with wattle and daub partitions in the roof
space. Graffito: on the first floor, above the main doorway, the
wall plaster is inscribed 'Joseph Hooton 1695': he was a builder
