light to first floor and 2-light to attic. To east is added 2-

ridge stack and ball-finial to south gable. Similar 4-light to
ground floor and 3-light above. South end gable had similar

To right a wing extends with coped east gable and south ground
floor 2-light, first floor 3-light and attic hipped dormer. An
added wing to east with east end stack has roof carried down low on
south front.
Interior: three good Tudor-arched moulded stone fireplaces to west
rooms, two to ground floor, one to first floor. During the C19 the
house was the Agent's house for Grittleton estate.
