of principal larger room (hall) to right with axial end stack and smaller unheated
room to left, divided axially, with dairy to rear and staircase to front. Late C20

Exterior: Asymmetrical 3-window front; C19 and C20 two-light wooden casements (left-
hand first-floor window blocked - see cill). Doorway between first and second
windows from right has late C20 porch with C20 plank door. Blocked doorway between
first and second windows from left (see lines in render). Barn to right has wide
doorway (without doors at time of survey - January 1988) with wooden lintel.
Inserted C20 trefoil-headed ground-floor window in left-hand gable-end of house has
reused C19 stained glass (the owner reports that it came from a church in Henley on
Thames, Berkshire). Blocked wide doorway to rear of barn.
Interior: Right-hand ground-floor room (hall) has C17 chamfered joists spanning
front to back, and C17 open fireplace to right with stone jambs, chamfered wooden
lintel with straight cut stops, bread oven with C19 cast-iron door and old cooking
frame. Old plank door to right of fireplace (leading to barn) with wrought-iron
strap hinges. Window seat in front window. Partitions removed at left-hand end in
