lintels, at left. Main house has a 16-pane sash and a 3-light

various. Near-contemporary lean-to. Through-passage door has

C17. Other openings similar to front of barn.
Interior: within the entrance hall a 2-light chamfered stone-
mullioned window on the right indicates the external wall of the
original house.
