walls have blue headers. Black glazed pantiles. Mid-C19 crow-stepping to both
gables and the 2-storey porch on the east (garden) front. One internal and
one rear stack, both with 2 octagonal shafts, moulded bases and starred caps

and-transome type, part small-paned sash style with top-opening lights. 2
