porch with arched entrance, moulded door surround (only the lintel original
with ovolo moulding), studded door with Victorian glass let in. Traces
of C16 building to rear. 'L' plan with stair turret in angle. Disturbed
masonry on east gable wall presumably marks site of C17 oriel window referred
to in inventory of the time.
Interior: a number of original features, particularly chamfered door surrounds;
the kitchen door is studded with trefoil-ended strap-hinges. The ceilings
are noticibly high for the period. East room on ground floor has a slightly
