E parlour block, C20 glazed porch. Timber frame, red brick casing, plum
brick E block and rear extension to E crosswing. Steep old red tile
roofs, hipped E block. A 2-storeys, 3-unit, lobby-entry plan house
facing S, with large internal chimney next gabled, taller E crosswing
projecting to front, and gabled rear service wing behind chimney. C19
rear outshut, 2-storeys gabled rear extension to crosswing with higher
ceiling heights, and tall 2-storeys E block at higher level on E end. S
font irregular, brick front to older W part has 2 windows on each floor,
3-light flush casements with small panes and cambered arches to ground
floor. Very large square chimney. Glazed single-storey porch to former
lobby entry. Higher gabled crosswing with recessed sash window with 3/3
panes on 1st floor. Porch extends across front. Higher hipped E block in
plum brick has large external projecting chimney in middle of S side
flanked by gabled 1st floor windows with narrow recessed sash windows
with 2/2 panes in raised red brick surrounds. Brick labels to 2 tall
narrow sash windows on ground floor. Large canted bay on E end of this

Squint-butted scarf joint in wallplate. Remains of wall painting on

chamfered beams with hollow stops. Panelled C18 corner cupboard against

block with bedroom over partly in roof. Fireplace with corner blocks and
paterae in office to rear of E crosswing. Dairy in ground floor of C17
rear extension.
