Impressive house with many interesting features. Dated 1659 but refaced
with red mathematical tiles about 1790. The main portion has 3 windows
and 3 gables. At the east end is a recessed portion, probably added in
the C18, of one window and one gable. Tiled roof to the whole. Three storeys.
Casement windows. Modern porch with pediment containing a bronze relief
in the tympanum. Bay window of 2 storeys on each side of this. In the

is my inheritance", "Except the Lord build a house they labour in vain that
build it" and "Here we have 1659 our abidance".
