House. Early C17. 1½ storeys: 5 original bays extended later on north and

gabled on north and half-hipped on south. One original internal chimney-stack
with plain red brick shaft, and a C19 stack on the north gable wall. C20
small-paned casement windows, 3 dormers with single-pitch roofs at rear. C19

mullions. Roof C20 renewed.
