and with cement infilling, the ground floor underbuilt and refaced with cement.
Hipped tiled roof. Modern casement windows except one original oriel windows
on the first floor consisting of 2 tiers of 5 lights with wooden mullions
and transom, old green glass and cove beneath. Two storeys, 3 windows.
The front has a stone in it with the date 1662 and the initials H.W.M, on

The east wall is tile-hung, the west wall of red brick and grey headers in
alternate courses. To the west of the house are 3 gate-piers of red brick
