Tudor-arched doorway below a label with carved lozenge stops, and has flanking
stone-mullioned windows with labels: 3-light at ground floor and 2-light above.
Left cottage, breaking forward, has a similar front facing left, and has 3-light
mullioned windows in the end wall below a half-hipped gable. Right and rear
