Two cell lobby entry house with additional C19 bay to left and modern wing to rear

the C19 extension to the left. One and a half storeys, presently 5 bays, 2 C19,
hall bay stack bay, parlour bay. Rather uneven square framing with some diagonal
bracing. All windows are modern small paned standard casements and French doors,
except for plate glass modern windows in modern gable end. 5 dormers to upper floor.

of C19 conversion and C20 reconversion. Good quality frame visible WmhW. Good
