flared blue headers, some roughcast timber framing, roofed with handmade red
plain tiles. Single-span range facing SW (at right angles to road) with 2 axial
stacks symmetrically arranged, original stair tower to rear, and 2-storey

rainwater guttering. Hipped gambrel roof. The stair tower is roughcast
rendered, with a hipped roof; the rear elevation of it has an C18 3-light window
with one wrought iron casement, rectangular leading and handmade glass, a
feature which merits special care. The bakehouse has one original horizontal
sash of 12 lights, a flush panelled door altered at the top, a dentilled eaves
cornice and a hipped roof. The house has unusual height at both storeys, with
chamfered beams with lamb's tongue stops above both; joists plain, mostly
plastered to the soffits. The left stack has a wide wood-burning hearth facing
to the left; smaller hearths elsewhere. On the first floor one early C19 cast
iron ducknest grate in the right stack, and one early C19 plain grate in the
left stack. In the stair tower, original dog-leg stair with wide moulded
handrails, square newels and serpentine flat balusters, meriting special care.
Many C18 internal doors, 3-plank and battened. The bakehouse has a large bread
oven, complete with wrought iron door and spring latch.
