stone slate roof. Three storeys. Quoins and coped gables with kneelers. The windows
have been altered and those with straight chamfers are recent replacements, but the

5-light to second floor, and the north facade one 5 -light transom window to first
floor and one 3-light transom window to second floor; all these windows have
hoodmoulds and are double chamfered with an ovolo inner chamfer. Other windows retain
only similar reveals. The C18 house is of hammer dressed stone with a hipped slate
roof. Quoins, sill bands to ground and first floor cut modillion cornice and 2 central
chimneys. Three storeys and 3 bays. Windows with stone architraves sashes with no

over the central window of firt floor. At rear, part of wall is of ashlar and
