brick. Welsh slate roof and 2 brick chimneys. Rectangular plan with
2 short ranges to rear. 3-storey, symmetrical 3-bay front. Brick
plinth, plain pilasters between bays on ground and 1st floor and a

pilasters). End bays have inserted 3-light windows with small-pane
iron casements under cambered brick heads, with 2-light casements in
half dormers in top storey. Projecting gabled 3-storey porch has
4-centred headed stone doorcase with restored lintel reading AD 1653

If the date is correct, this is remarkably early use of classical
detailing on a vernacular building.
