mid- to late C19 wooden casements, those on ground and first floors with
transoms; central door with 6 flush panels, 3-part rectangular overlight,

central segmental-headed boarded door. Pavilions: each has dentil brick

pedimented gable end to front. 2 bays: central oculus to attic with
glazing bars and stone architrave, ground floor depressed-arched blind

with later lean-to addition to east; pavilions have 2-leaf stable
doors at rear and stone tallet steps at gable ends up to segmental-

ambitious formal composition for an otherwise conventional C18 farm-
