each with flat hoodmould and leaded casement; single 2-light to

casements. South east side: 3 gables, right obscured by addition
of Beehive Cottage. Left gable has projecting chimney stack with 2

right gables, all 2-light. Two-storey flat-roofed addition

Interior: many original fittings including folding front door.
Other contemporary panelled doors. Moulded stone fireplace has
date shield. Ogee stops to beam chamfers. Extended collar roof
structure. Possibly incorporates part of an earlier building, said
to have been a Tudor hunting lodge; little architectural evidence
exists for this, however.
