plaintiles. 2 storeys and attics. 2 plain red brick chimney stacks set
externally on the end walls. Wood modillion cornice. 3 gabled dormers with

the whole ground floor front. 3 bays of C16 framing remain within the house:
to the left of the central entrance is a truss with chamfered main beam and
